Large Freshman Class 
Matriculates At L V. 


Home State Heads List; Illi- 
nois and Sierra Leone, 
Africa included 

The class of 1941, approximately 
140 strong, has invaded Lebanon Val- 
ley College campus for a four years' 
stay. Five states, including Pennsyl- 
vania, New York, New Jersey, Mary- 
land, and Illinois, are represented, as 
a lso is the District of Columbia. How- 
ever, the long distance record for this 
particular class has been set by Sol- 
omon Brooks Caulker from Sierra 
Leone, West Africa. As regards the 
proportion of men students to women 
students the scales are a bit more 
balanced than last year, when the men 
outweighed the women by approxi- 
mately three to one. 

The list of new students is as fol-

For the opening programs of the 
Clionian and Kalozetean Literary So- 
cieties, the two organizations held a 
joint session for the Frosh and club 
members 7:30 P. M. Saturday even- 
ing in Kalo Hall. The program was 
announced by John Gongloff, Kalo 
President, and Sylva Harclerode, Clio 

The program opened with a jam 
session by some of the Kalo musicians. 
Dorothy Zeiters of Clio followed with 
a solo number on her cello. Jean 
Schock played a medley of popular 
tunes on the piano, and then came 
Kalo's version of "Uncle Tom's Cab- 
in" with Dean Aungst as Little Eva, 
Lloyd Berger as Topsy, Harlan Kin- 
ney as Simon Lagree, and Clarence 
Lehman as Uncle Tom. There fol- 
lowed the Kalo Follies of 1897 with 
Frankie Dinunzio, the Lenker Broth- 
ers, Willy Scherfel, and George Mun- 
day. Each member of the chorus did 
a solo dance and as the group re- 
treated, loud cheers issued from the 
society hall. 

Lillian Zubroff and others then 
served refreshments consisting of ci- 
der, doughnuts, and candy to the as- 
sembled guests. 

At nine o'clock Dr. and Mrs. Bailey 
and Miss Mary Gillespie chaperoned 
the group in the college gym while 
they danced to the music of a popular 
orchestra until 11:45 at which time 
curfew was sounded. 


A surprise greeted the North Hall 
women this year when they returned to 
college. The rooms where the former 
dean, Mrs. Green, lived, were occupied 
by the new Dean of Women, Miss Mary 
Gillespie, who is Director of the Con- 
servatory. Miss Gillespie was appointed 
dean to fill the vacancy left by the resig- 
nation of Mrs. Green. While the girls 
were sorry to see Madame Green leave 
North Hall, they are glad to welcome 
Miss Gillespie. In the new dean the girls 
are sure to have a friend who will be 
sympathetic and understanding and who 
will ably fill her position. 

Y. Cabinets Supervise 
Tenth Freshman Week 

The Y cabinets of Lebanon Valley 
College opened their 1937-38 schedule of 
activities by cooperating with Dr. Rey- 
nolds and the faculty committee on 
Freshman Week in its program to in- 
troduce members of the Freshman class 
to their new environment. 

The upperclassmen invited back did 
an effective piece of work, conducting 
new students on registration day, tak- 
ing charge of various events on the pro- 
gram, and what may have been the most 
important of all, waiting on tables. 

Committees were appointed, two mem- 
bers from each cabinet, each committee

Pep Meeting Tonight 

Five, three, two, shift ! All out for 
the big pep meeting tonight on the 
banks of the Quittie west of town ! 
A big bon fire ! The band ! The cheer- 
leaders ! They will all be there to

Captain Davies, Eddie Kress, "Gab-

boys will be there to say a few words. 
Let's all get out and show the boys 
we are 100% behind them. 

Frosh Smear Sophs In Battle 

It happened Monday night a week 
.ago. We remember it distinctly because 
everyone else had gone home leaving the 
editorial room so dark and lonely that 
we decided to put the paper to bed and 
oral) a few winks ourselves when the 
telephone rang. We lifted the receiver 
which immediately began to burr ex- 
citedly with a voice recognisable as be- 
longing to one of our staff reporters, 
who was trying, with obvious excite- 
ment, to stammer a hot story over the 
wires. "Scoop!" he said, "Labor trou- 

ble invades campus! Send a man down 
to take pictures of the riot! And get 
some cops — it's getting rough. Man oh 
boy, won't those babies on the Annville 
Journal look sick when they read about 
this in the paper!" 

We slammed the receiver down and 
rushed to the scene of action, which was 
the campus quadrangle. As far as we 
could see, somebody was trying to break 
a sit-in strike in the men's dormitory, 
which we had known nothing about when

1937 Grid Schedule Opens 
At Bucknell Tomorrow Night

Freshmen Guests of Two So- 
cieties at Annual Joint 

The 1937 edition of Coach Jerome Frock's Lebanon Valley gridiron war- 
riors make their public debut tomorrow night at Lewisburg where they take 
the field against the Bisons of Bucknell University. The home team will pre- 
sent a lineup liberally sprinkled with sophomores while the visitors will place 
an all veteran team on the field. In spite of this apparent disadvantage the 
home team will rule favorites to win a hard-lought battle. 

In preparation for this battle the Flying Dutchmen staged two practice 
sessions with the University of Pennsylvania team last week, one at Hershey 
on Thursday, and the other at Annville on Saturday. In the first scrimmage 
the Penn team showed a little advantage over the Blue and White. The sec- 
ond tangle was much more closely fought for the most part. Coach Frock 
led with his second stringers while Coach Harmon of the Red and Blue started 

his regulars. The Penn team was giv- 
en the ball on its own 20-yard line 
and wasted little time in demonstrat- 
ing its superiority. Power plays and 
a very successful aerial attack had 
the Blue and White back on its heels 
in short order. Penn scored a myth- 
ical touchdown on a long pass to top 
off the opening drive. This Lebanon 
Valley team could do little on the of- 
fense. This onesidedness was rather 
expected but it gave Coach Frock's 
reserves some valuable experience. 

The whole complex changed after 
both coaches shifted their lineups. The 
Blue and White regulars took the field 
against the Philadelphian's reserves. 
Eddie Kress' long accurate punts 
pushed the Red and Blue back quick- 
ly. The stonewall defense of the Leb- 
anon Valley line stopped the Penn of- 
fensive gestures with a remarkable 
effectiveness. The attack gathered 
momentum. Soon it was Penn that 
had its back to the wall. A backfield 
consisting of Eddie Kress, Chris 
Walk, Tony Rozman, and Pete Frid- 
inger flashed a variety of pass and 
spinner plays to gain many yards. All 
this serves as a great boost to the 
chances of the Flying Dutchmen in 
their game with Bucknell this week. 
The line which appeared with the

for their benefit. A program filled with 
thrills and surprises was presented in 
the chapel, with Ernestine Jagnesak as 
mistress of ceremonies. The society pres- 
idents, Agnes Morris and Boyd Shaffer, 
each gave a short address of welcome 
to start the evening. 

The first number on the program was

The fourth edition of WHO'S WHO 
compilation of biographies of the out- 
standing students in America, is now 
being assembled and will appear in Feb- 
ruary. Nominations are made by each 
college according to the enrollment of 
the student body, and no freshmen or 
sophomores are allowed to be nominat- 
ed. Last year over 400 institutions were 
represented in the Who's Who and it is 
hoped that this year every institution 
of higher learning in the United States 
will be included. 

The students to represent Lebanon 
Valley in the volume, chosen by colla- 
boration of Dean Stonecipher and the 
Men's Senate, are Hazel Heminway, Lu- 
cille Maberry, Robert Tschopp, Robert 
Clippinger, Boyd Shaffer, and Gordon 

To be included in Who's Who, a stu- 
dent must have a combination of the 
qualities listed below to indicate that 
he is outstanding and an asset to his 
school: Character, Scholarship, Leader- 
ship in extra-curricular activities, and 
Possibility of future usefulness to busi- 
ness and society.

Juniors Choose Officers 

Last Thursday the Junior Class 
held an official huddle to determine 
who should be their representatives 
in the Student-Faculty Council which 
gets together at stated intervals and 
submits suggestions to various com- 
mittees, and the faculty generally. 
After considerable difficulty in lur- 
ing a quorum within the gates the 
class finally elected Amy Monteith 
and Joseph Thomas to represent them 
in this body. 

The class president, Franklin Gro- 
ver Zerbe, also read a report con- 
cerning what progress has been made 
to date by the editor of the year- 
book. It was not possible, however, 
to determine just exactly how far 
into execution the plans for this work 
have been carried, since it is a bit 
early in the year to expect definite 
pronouncements. A gratifying note 
was struck by that section of the edi- 
tor's report dealing with the financial 
status of the yearbook which he al- 
leges to be in sound condition at

We note with extreme satisfaction the number of improve- 
ments that have taken place on the campus of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege during the past summer. The grounds and buildings have 
been beautified, educational facilities have been improved, and 
numerous other changes have been made for the better. All this 
presages a steady evolutionary process, begun many years ago, 
which, continuing shall carry Lebanon Valley far ahead in educa- 
tional fields. 

There are also other criteria of progress which, while less 
material, are none the less equally perceptible. The opening of 
the school year finds a new and greater enthusiasm pervading the 
sampus; an enthusiasm which should lead to greater achieve- 
ments in all fields. The hum of activity in the academic buildings, 
the renewed interest in clubs and societies, and the high hopes 
and fine spirit in athletics promise big things to come at Lebanon 

Together with the rest of the College, La Vie looks forward 
with new aims — to furthering this march of progress. It is our 
hope to weld the student body together hi closer unity, to spread 
good will and feeling, and to exercise our editorial privileges of 
review in the most constructive manner. 

With the cooperation of all, this year should not be merely an- 
other year for Lebanon Valley, but "one of the biggest" in her 
history to date. 


It is with no little regret that we learn that the band will no 
longer accompany the team and its supporters to the away foot- 
ball games. In the past it has always been such a customary and 
pleasing sight to review the boys in their blue and white uniforms 
as they paraded, and executed skillful maneuvers upon the enemy 
fields, that we have come to look upon them as an indispensable 
feature of every game. Certainly there was no more cheering 
sight to the rooters, nor one more encouraging to the team. And 
win or lose, the college has taken as much pride in displaying its 
band as it has the prowess of its teams. It is an organization that 
has aroused admiration and comment from friend and foe alike. 

But why this decision to abandon the trips? It appears that 
most of the school is heartily in favor of them. It is difficult, 
moreover to attribute it to finances, as the band is in better con- 
dition financially this year than it had been previous years when 
every trip was made. In the face of existing circumstances it can- 
not help but seem that a small minority have succeeded in putting 
personal interests before the wishes of the majority, and, in our 
opinion, before the interests of the school. 

We hope that even at this writing it is not too late to recon- 
sider this decision. The band has always contributed greatly to- 
ward upholding the morale of the team, and its absence will be 
keenly felt.

Vacation Antics 

of Favorite Professors 

Lebanon Valley's complete corps of 
professors returned to active duties 
in their respective departments of in- 
struction with pleasant memories of 
summer vacations. All were present 
on Sept. 20 when the opening salvos 
of the academic artillery were fired, 
and most were on hand even before 
that time to greet the freshmen new- 
comers, who arrived one week early. 
La Vie was among the earliest, stand- 
ing by to sample at first hand the re- 
freshing experiences of the vacation- 
ing professoriate. 

S. O. Grimm, for example was re- 
quired to remain at his post as Sum- 
mer School registrar during the heart 
of the vacation season. 

Andrew Bender, likewise lingered 
close to the collegiate scene instruct- 
ing in Summer School chemistry 

Margaret Wood took extension 
courses at the University of Pennsyl- 

_..V. Earl Light attended the sessions 
of the Pennsylvania Academy of Sci- 
ence, and conducted courses in the 
Summer School. Odd moments were 
spent constructively upon his farm. 

E. H. Stevenson rusticated by the 
side of lake Keuka. He was occupied 
chiefley by carpentry, and especially 
in the erection of a wharf upon the 
lake front. 

Mrs. Stella Stevenson was diverted 
by cooking and carpentry, as well as 
the other concomitant pursuits of the 
lake Keuka region. 

President Clyde A. Lynch in addi- 
tion to many administration duties, 
motored to Canada and wielded his 
tennis racquet upon the campus 
courts. He also taught several classes 
in Summer School. 

Amos Black attended the sessions 
of the American Mathematical So- 
ciety. After teaching in the Summer 
School, he visited relatives in West 

C. R. Gingrich conducted courses in 
the Summer School and toured histor- 
ical spots in Virginia. 

O. Edgar Reynolds supervised prac- 
tice teaching at Hershey. Later he 
made a trip into the central West vis- 
iting and negotiating business.

Tenth Freshman Week 

(Continued from page 1) 

to work out one definite part of the 
program, a method of procedure which 
proved to work very well. 

"Freshmen Fellowship" was held on 
Wednesday evening of Freshman Week, 
with the girls meeting in North Hall 
parlor and the men in the Y. M. C. A 
rooms. The purpose of these meetings 
as of almost all of the other events, was 
to enable Freshmen to meet each other 
and become acquainted. 

The church reception was held on 
Thursday evening in the basement Sun- 
day School rooms of the United Breth- 
ren church. Greetings were brought by 
the minister, the Rev. W. A. Wilt, and 
other church leaders. A varied musical 
program was presented, followed by 
light refreshments. 

Friday's feature was the Freshman 
hike to the Pines, north of Annville 
Chaperones for the affair were Professor 
and Mrs. Carmean and Professor an 
Mrs. Stokes. Upon the party's arrival 
a campfire had been built, and while 
was being started, the hikers formed « 
large circle and introduced one another 
A doggie and marshmallow roast fol- 
lowed, replete with side-dishes. A pro- 
gram of popular numbers and school 
songa led by a "choir" of upper class 
men was sung as the embers died, am 
the evening's fun was brought to a close 
by the singing of the Alma Mater

A large group of L. V. C. co-eds en 
joyed a novel hike Wednesday ev " 
ing in company with the Delphian Lj t

came hobos and entered into the spi r j t 
of the occasion in a happy-go-i^ 
mood. Each hobo prepared his 
food while singing college S i 
Then followed Delphian's traditional 
ceremony. Anna Morrison sang "g 
the Land of the Sky Blue Water" as 
the candles were lighted and began t

Delta Lamba Sigma has been wort 
ing on plans for the four-society pro , 
gram to be given in the chapel. These 
same plans are kept under lock and 
key, so we may look for something 
mysterious and exciting to be the out- 
come. Also in the future are a series 
of literary programs to be given by 
the society, so be on the lookout. 


The Clionian Literary Society has 
big things in mind for the new year. 
The opening event was the Clio-Kalo 
joint session last Saturday night. This 
week Clio is planning its annual hike 
for Freshmen girls Friday afternoon 
at 4:30. There will be an entertain- 
ing program, supper, and the tradi- 
tional rites performed at Kreider's. 
All Freshmen girls are invited to be 
there. The following week, according 
to L. V. custom, the four societies 
will get together to present a pro- 
gram in Engle Hall followed by a 
dance for all the Frosh and society 
members in the college gymnasium. 
Monday, October 11 has been set for 
the final choosing of societies.

leaving it earlier in the evening. How- 
ever, things happen fast in this busi- 
ness. You have to be ready for any- 
thing. So we scurried about trying to 
decipher the lettering on the banners 
being carried, but owing to the dark- 
ness, we were unable to figure them out. 

Then some one near us shouted, "Come 
on — we gotta release the prisoners!" We 
didn't know anything about prisoners, 
but you can never tell what will turn 
into a story, so we dashed along and 
helped to release prisoners. Surprising- 
ly enough, they turned out to be a cou- 
ple of college freshmen whom some one 
had tied to chairs in the dorm. When 
they were untied they rushed out on the 
campus before we had a chance to inter- 
view them. Nobody we met seemed to 
know what it was all about. 

Further conjecture was brought to an 
abrupt halt, however; we were caught 1,1 
a whirlpool of flying fists and bumping 
heads. Everybody seemed to be doing 
his best to decrease the population as 
rapidly and efficiently as possible. P er 
sonally, we wished we were in Tirfi° uC 
too, or Liverpool— the Alumni gyw^ s ' 
ium even, anywhere, in fact, where thw 
was less danger of being set upon ^ 
passing band of assassins, so, era ^ 
away to the sidelines we watched 

rest of the melee unmolested. 


At first the group which came 
the dormitory seemed to be doing 
well, and then the other outfit rent & ^ 
its enthusiasm. Cries and fists toil 
on our consciousness with reSUSC ^ e il 
force. People grunted— you coul( l f D iv, 
gladitorial sweat— and then, su . 
it was all over. The little fellows 
the outside had won. 

"Hey!" we asked, "who won wha thick -

r.j3urg Bison to Meet

Ursmus Win 

yjith one victory already on the rec- 
r d Bucknell's new coach, Al Hum 
Ljgyg, and his Bisons eagerly await th: 
• f»sion of the Flying Dutchmen tomor- 
row night. 

In their iirst game the Lewisburg lads 
splayed speed and offensive power a- 
lenty to bowl over the Ursinus Bears 



satislied with their defense, how- 
because the Bears thrice marched 
the held on sustained drives. 

furthermore, the victory proved a cost- 
ly one as Bucknell lost two guards for 
die season, one with a broken shoulder 
aI id the other with a broken ankle. 

prospects for a closely contested game 
appear particularly bright at the mo- 
ment. The Dutchmen will be greatly 
outweighed by their opponents, averag- 
ing 180 pounds per man in the line to 
Bucknell's 187. In the backfield the 
Thundering Herd's weight advantage is 
even more pronounced since their aver- 
age is 181 to L. V. C.'s 170. This Bison 
advantage in poundage will be offset 
somewhat, it is hoped, by the greater 
experience of the Blue and White elev- 
en. Whereas every man in Coach Frock's 
starting lineup lias had at least one 
year's varsity experience, Humphreys' 
starting eleven will be studded with in- 
experienced sophomores (Bucknell's 
freshmen are not eligible for varsity 
competition) . 

Bucknell followers are expecting big 
things of Lou Tomasetti, the Bisons' ace 
halfback, and well they might, for all 
Loping Lou could do against Ursinus 
was to average yards a play, score 
two of Bucknell's three touchdowns, and 
gain 154 of the 266 yards gained by the 
team as a whole. So, if a Lebanon Val- 
ley victory is forthcoming, a way must 
be found to stop Tomasetti. 

In eight meetings with the Bisons, L. 
V. C. has been able to eke out only one 
victory, that being in 1915 by a score of

Lebanon Valley's veteran back, Pete 
Fridinger, has greeted many an opposing 
back as he came shooting through ap- 
parently headed for a gain. After meet- 
ing Fridinger they changed their minds 
abruptly. This, his last year, should be 
his best. 


Rain forced the postponement of 
the scheduled practice tennis match on 
Tuesday between the Lebanon Coun- 
try Club team and a team composed 
of candidates for the 1938 L. V. C. 
team. It is hoped that another date 
can be arranged to give Coach Stev- 
enson a line on the material from 
which he can pick his team next 

At a meeting last week it was de- 
cided to hold a number of practice 
sessions this fall if the weather per- 
mitted. The first match is scheduled 
for April 23 which means that there 
will be very little opportunity to do 
much practicing next spring. In view 
of these facts Dr. Stevenson suggest- 
ed that the varsity candidates concen- 
trate on playing each other instead 
of holding a tournament for the whole 
school as has been done the past few 
years. All present expressed their 
whole-hearted approval. 

Eugene Shenk, manager, stated 
that he is busy arranging an impos- 
ing schedule of probably fifteen 
matches for the coming season. Some 
of the schools under consideration are 
Susquehanna, Juniata, Albright, 
Franklin & Marshall, Ursinus, and 
Muhlenberg. A match for the morn- 
ing of May Day has already been ar- 
ranged with Albright. 

Only two members of the 1937 team, 
Homer Donmoyer and Clair Snell, 
will not be available for the 1938 edi- 
tion. The holdovers are Stewart Sha- 
piro, Jacob Umberger, Eugene Shenk, 
and Arthur Evelev. Other leading 
candidates are Dick Weagley, Danny 
Seiverling, Roger Saylor and several 
freshmen . Umberger distinguished 
himself this past summer by reach- 
ing the semi-finals in the Lebanon 
County Championships. Weagley won 
the championship of his home town, 
Greencastle. From this material 
Coach Stevenson should be able to 
pick another formidable set of rac- 
quet wielders.

New Professor of Voice 
Studied Two Years in 

The students of Lebanon Valley 
College are proud to welcome to the 
campus Judson House, eminent tenor, 
who will serve as associate professor 
of voice. 

Mr. House was born in Brooklyn, 
New York, and was educated in the 
public schools there. At the age of 
seven, he began the study of music 
by taking piano lessons and by serv- 
ing as choir boy. He won in competi- 
tion as boy soprano and was sent to 
England for two years where he be 
came a member of the famous boys' 
choir of Westminster Abbey. His 
education was continued with private 
instruction from Adelaide Gescheidt 
and Frank La Forge. He has obtained 
an honorary degree from Valparaiso 

Mr. House has sung prominent roles 
in Aida, II Trovatore, Carmen, Mar- 
tha, Faust, and other operas, but the 
most thrilling moment of his musical 
experience occurred when he sang for 
Caruso. Caruso, upon hearing him, 
was so astonished at his ability that 
he offered him free coaching. This ar- 
rangement, however, was cut short 
by Caruso's untimely death. 

Professor House possesses an ex- 
ceedingly genial personality and prom- 
ises to become a warm friend of both 
faculty and students. When ques- 
tioned as to his favorite dish, he re- 
plied, "Roast chicken; but it's not 
gotten at the Pennway." 

His favorite hobby or pastime is 
reading. He reads particularly arti- 
cles of current interest, for he says 
that students — particularly college 
students — are well informed, and that 
teachers must have a broad knowl- 
edge of many subjects in order to 
teach intelligently. 

Like all freshmen, this freshman 
professor was the victim of initiation 
upon arrival on the campus. Pro- 
fessor's Crawford and Stokes "ganged 
up" on him and told him to have a 
twenty-minute spech prepared to be 
delivered to the faculty and students 
on the morning he was introduced in 
chapel. This caused him many uneasy 
moments, and, says "prof," "Imagine 
my relief when Dr. Lynch merely in- 
troduced me and said I would sing 
later. Result — one good speech pigeon-

of the board of trustees, welcomed the 
Class of 1941, and spoke informally to 
old and new students about the meaning 
and purpose of a college career. He ex- 
horted them to remember those whose 
sacrifices make it possible for them to 
enjoy the benefits of higher education. 
Mr. Mills noted the changes that have 
come about since his own college days, 
and, foreseeing L. V. C.'s continued ex- 
pansion, he prophesied the realization 
of some hoped-for improvements in the 
years ahead of us, such as a new gym- 
nasium and a separate science building. 
He was warmly applauded by the stu- 
dent-body, and Dr. Lynch promised due 
consideration for suggested improve- 
ments, in keeping with the growth of 
the college. 

Members of the Conservatory Faculty 
presented an excellent musical program. 
Mr. Owen in a group of piano solos, 
Mr. Campbell at the organ, and Mrs. 
Bender and Miss Miller as a two-piano 
team, impressed as well as delighted 
their audience. The climax of the mu- 
sical program was the introduction of 
Judson House, Tenor, new vocal instruc- 

Although on the sidelines most of last 
season with an injured leg, Bob Brown 
is all set for a great comeback this sea- 
son. His presence at left end gives Blue 
and White gridiron followers a distinct 
sense of security against end runs.

Upon returning to the campus this 
fall several improvements were noted 
which deserve mention. Among those 
which most concern us are the resur- 
facing of the walks about the campus 
and especially the road leading to the 
men's dormitory. Living quarters 
were much improved in North Hall by 
the papering of the walls. In the 
Conservatory the studios were redec- 

In town a new restaurant sprang 
up beside Grimm's store. The Penn- 
way installed a new soda fountain 
and added booths to greatly improve 
appearances as well as increase the 
seating capacity. Brunner's have a 
magazine stand which gives us all the 
latest copies from Coronet to Pocket 

New slate tops have been put on the 
lockers in the chemistry laboratory. 
This should induce good work by our 
chemists because the old wooden ones 
were somewhat unattractive. 

Kalo Hall has been beautified by 
the addition of furniture and rugs 
where students may spend, their 
spare time. 

aforementioned backfield was Frey 
and Brown, ends; Herman and Bos- 
niak, tackles; Captain Davies and Bu- 
lota, guards; and Belmar, center. 
Frank Rozman and Coda Sponaugle 
were unable to participate because of 
injuries. It is hoped, however that 
they will be in shape again by tomor- 
row night. Their addition to the line- 
up would enhance the chances of the 
Blue and White greatly in the Lewis- 
burg battle. With or without these 
men the Lebanon Valley team will be 
a veteran one except in the matter of 

Last year the Bucknell team beat 
the Lebanon Valley gridiron warriors 
by three touchdowns largely as a re- 
sult of a concentrated drive in the sec- 
ond half of the struggle. Many of the 
players wearing Bison colors that 
night have since passed on, but the 
new edition got off to an auspicious 
start last week by trouncing Ursinus 
to the tune of 21-0. 

Philo-Delphian Join in 

Presenting Program 

(Continued from page 1) 


At a meeting of the Y. W. C. A. 
cabinet on Tuesday evening the fol- 
lowing persons were chosen as mem- 
bers of the Freshman cabinet: Mar- 
tha Jane Kuntz, Jean Bliven, Louella 
Shindle, Mabel Miller, Feme Poet, 
Joan Cox, Margaret Boyd, Marian 
Reiff, Margaret Bordwell, and Dor- 
othea Dondo. 

This body works in collaboration 
with the Senior "Y" cabinet and has 
various duties of its own to perform, 
one of them being to buy roses for 
Mothers' Week-end to present to the 

Life," by Nora Franklin. This was fol- 
lowed by a very witty sketch, "The 
Treasurer's Report," Curvin Thompson, 
Treasurer. The treasurer was continu- 
ally harassed by an unruly sock which 
refused to cover his ankles. He ner- 
vously played with a pair of horn- 
rimmed spectacles which adorned his 
nose, obviously as a take-off on a, faculty 
member. Furthermore, he seemed to ut- 
terly lack powers of concentration. The 
result— probable bankruptcy. 

Three delightful blues singers then ap- 
peared, assuming the names of Delta, 
Lambda and Sigma. To the general pub- 
lic they are known as Anna Morrison, 
Nora Franklin, and Greta Heiland. They 
filled the atmosphere with the sweet 
strains of "September in the Rain" and 
"Gone With the Wind." The climax of 
the show was a skit entitled, "The Fresh- 
man and the Lady." The cast included 
Ben Goodman and Raymond Smith, riv- 
als in love, Robert Tschopp, Damon Sil- 
vers, the lover supreme who knew all 
the answers, and Richard Weagley, the 
cocky freshman. The two suitors, upon 
advice of their campaign managers, 
Tschopp and Silvers, each contemplated 
undertaking bold steps to win the heart 
of the cherished one. Upon learning of 
each other's intentions they became em- 
broiled in a heated verbal argument. 
The whole matter reached a sudden con- 
clusion when the freshman proudly an- 
nounced that he was already married 
to the little dear. 

Upon recovering from this shock the 
group retired to the gymnasium for re- 
freshments and dancing. The music was 
supplied by Phil Lester and his boys.

Frosh Capture Killer; An- 
nual Hoax Proves Suc- 
cessful Affair 

Large Freshman Class 

Matriculates At L. V. 

{Continued from pagt 1) 

Special to La Vie Collegienne; all 
rights reserved. 
Acting on a tip from M. Cestadire, 
noted French criminologist who writes 
special .articles ior La V ie, your reporter 
and a hastily sworn pos^e of deputy po- 
lice from the freshman class captured 
not two hours after the commission of 
his now famous crime of Tuesday night 
Jack Moller, the slayer, who couldn't 
take it when he found his amorata, Isa- 
belle Cox, dancing one night last week 
on the arms of the popular senior, John 
Gongloff, and therefore poured four 
blazing shots from a revolver into Gong- 
loff during a drunken brawl precipitated 
by a sununons for buth principles to 
appear before the Men's Senate to an- 
swer charges involving several major of- 
fenses they had committed during the 
past week. 

The crime occurred at ten minutes 
past ten p. m. when Moller, whose breath 
testified a heavy indulgence in strong 
waters not long previous, ended &. wan- 
dering search for Gongloff by finding 
him in his room. When he did so, eye- 
witnesses assert, he pulled a large re- 
volver from his pocket. Gongloff, real- 
izing his danger, rushed at him, brush- 
ing him aisde, and bounded down the 
stairs. Moller, crazed with drink, ap- 
parently, and mad with jealousy, pur- 
sued down another stairway. They met 
in the archway of the men's dorm, where 
Moller fired several shots into Gongloff 
at close range. Gongloff crumpled to 
the pavement, and in the ensuing con- 
fusion, Moller leaped into the parked car 
of a Mr. Ralston, who had left it stand- 
ing nearby. He had a good five minutes 
start on pursuit before anyone recov- 
ered sufficiently from shock to follow 

A group of Freshmen, however, were 
the first to come to, and, leaping into 
automobiles, they followed in hot pur- 
suit. Others of their number telephoned 
police, hospitals, and the local fire com- 
pany, who, some one shouted, could be 
of assistance. 

In the meantime, Isabelle Cox, the 
woman in the case, turned North Hall 
into a bedlam of hysteria when told of 
the incident. A frantic freshman rushed 
into the parlor just as Isabelle was 
about to go upstairs to bed. In his ex 
citement, he blurted out the news, Gaus 
ing the girl to scream and fall on the 
spot in sobbing convulsions. When a 
crowd gathered, she became hysterical 
and fainted after trying to rush out am 
see Gongloff, in which object she final- 
ly succeeded, although she finally fell i 
a dead faint and had to be carried back 
to the girl's dorm where pandemonium 
reigned. In one of the girls' dorms there 
were girls making hectic prayers on long 
unused Bibles, frantic offers of help, 
and general confusion. 

Meanwhile, the excitement at the scene 
of the crime was heightened by the ap 
pearance of Dr. Lynch, Dr. Wilt, the 
Catholic priest, and a number of local 
officials summoned by the alert fresh-

Debating Association 
Meets At Harrisburg 


tf. L. R. B. Regulation of In- 
dustrial Disputes Dis- 
cussed as Question for De- 

The annual meeting of the Debat- 
ing Association of Pennsylvania Col- 
leges met on Saturday afternoon, Oc- 
tober 2, in Harrisburg with represen- 
tatives of approximately twenty-five 
Pennsylvania colleges in attendance 
Lebanon Valley's delegation to the 
meeting consisted of Hazel Hemin- 
w ay, Ella Mason, Louise Saylor, Cal 
vin Spitler, Carl Ehrhart, and Dr. E. 
H. Stevenson. 

The primary purpose of the meet- 
ing, beside., the ordinary business rou- 
tine, was to choose a question for de- 
bate to be used throughout the en- 
tire organization. Although no def- 
inite choice can be given as a result, 
in all likelihood the question selected 
by the national debating fraternity 
will be used by the state association. 
That question is as follows: Resolved, 
that the National Labor Relations 
Board be empowered to enforce ar- 
bitration of all industrial dispvtes. 

Another question was introduced by 
one of the delegates to the meeting 
which would have Congress enact a 
law forbidding conscription of troops 
to be used outside the boundaries of 
North and South America and adja- 
cent territorial waters thereto. It 
was the opinion of the assembly that 
the latter question would prove in- 
finitely more interesting, not only 
from the viewpoint of the debatov. 
but even more from the viewpoint 
of the audience. The American col- 
lege student of today is or should be

Dr. Weidler in Chapel 

On Monday morning Dr. V. O. 
Weidler, of the Bonebrake Theologi- 
cal Seminary, .addressed the student 
body in the chapel exercises. He 
spoke of the cognative and conno- 
tive influences in the lives of a stu-

the latter to be Under-emphasized 
His various references and illustra-

Dr. Weidler, a graduate of Leba- 
non Valley, is Secretary of Home 
Missions and Church Erection of the 
United Brethren Church and was in 
Harrisburg last week attending the 
annual conference of the Church. 
Many students also heard a sermon 
by Dr. Weidler from the local pulpit ; 
on Sunday evening. 


L R. C. Holds Discussion 
On Sino-Jap Conflict 

Members of the International Rela- 
tions Club held their first meeting of 
the year Wednesday evening, October 6, 
at Dr. Stevenson's new home. 

The members discussed events of in- 
ternational importance informally with 
the spot-light being focused chiefly on 
the Sino-Japanese conflict. 

Among items of business brought to 
the attention of the meeting, was the 
suggestion that the club join the Foreign 
Policy Association. 

Membership in this club is open to all 
students, the o i.y requirement being an 
interest in world* problems. No, there 
are no dues. 

Officers of the club forecast that, in 
view of the rapidity with which events 
of signi'leance are happening today, the 
I. R. C. may lock forward to a year o 
livelv discussion.

Delphian Entertains 

New Students On Hike 

The Delta Lamba Sigma Literary 
Society held their annual hike for the 
new students last Wednesday after- 
noon along the banks of the Quittie. 
It was a ragged-looking crowd of 
hoboes that set out from South Hall 
at four-thirty. Each one had her pack 
slung over her shoulder, and trudged 
along in a carefree spirit. Games were 
played while a huge fire was built to 
roast hot dogs and marshmallows. 
Hot spaghetti and cocoa were also 
served. Many references to the mur- 
der were made in the stunts which 
followed until night fell. 

Anna Morrison sang "In the Land 
of the Sky Blue Water" as the candles 
were gently pushed out on the Quit- 
tie and drifted down the stream. Thus

Powerful Running Attack 
Shatters Blue and White 
Hopes; Kress Punts Well 

Lebanon Valley's Flying Dutchmen 
opened their 1937 gridiron warfare by 
holding the Bisons of Bucknell to a 
13-0 score. Except for the two scor- 
ing marches, Coach Frock's men held 
the Lewisburgers pretty well in check. 
These two drives, one for 69 yards 
and the other for 52 yards, however, 
saved the day from a Bucknell point 
of view. Several injuries early in the 
game handicapped the Valleyites con- 

The first period opened with Buck- 
nell kicking-off to the Lebanon Val- 
ley 5. In five plays the Dutchmen 
brought the ball back to the Bucknell 
48, Chris Walk's 14-yard gain fea- 
turing. An intercepted pass ended 
the L. V. C. drive abruptly. On the 
second down the Bucknell team kicked 
to Eddie Kress on the Blue and 
White 15. Unfortunately for the Ann- 
ville boys, however, he fumbled and 
Bucknell recovered. Three plays net- 
ted the Bisons less than 5 yards. On 
the fourth down an unsuccessful for- 
ward pass into the end zone gave 
Lebanon Valley the ball on their own 
20. The remainder of the period was 
mainly a kicking duel between Kress 
and Tomasetti, with neither having a 
decided edge. 

Kress opened the second period 
with a punt which was returned to 
the Bucknell 31. Eight running plays 
with Tomasetti and Funair doing 
most of the work netted the Bisons 
four first downs and a position on the

Native Of Danzig Chooses 
Lebanon Valley As Alma Mater 

This week LA VIE COLLEGIENNE wishes to welcome our European 
friend, Gert Martin Gutstein, to the campus of Lebanon Valley College. Mar- 
tin arrived in Annville last Saturday evening, and at the time of the writing 

of this article he has enjoyed himself 

Martin Gutstein was born in the 
free city of Danzig. Here he spent 
one and one-half years in the ele- 
mentary schools, from where he 
moved to Stettin, the capital of Po- 
merania. He completed his elemen- 
tary school education at Stettin in 
two and one-half years and then en- 
tered high school. Martin finished his 
high school work in the regular six 
years taking English, French, and 
some Spanish as his language require- 

One and one-half years ago he 
moved to his present home in Berlin, 
Germany. For the next five months 
he furthered his knowledge of Eng- 
lish under a Pennsylvania German 
tutor, from whom he learned of Leb- 
anon Valley College. Martin was

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1937 No. 8 


At this particular time of year the new students will find 
themselves so persistently besieged by society "rutehers" and 
friends attempting to interest them in this or that society, that 
LA VIE volunteers this word of comment without innuendo or 
malice aforethought. 

Firstly, it is well for the new student to be wary of any wild 
promises made to him by any society. No society is in a position 
to make any definite promises to a prospective member, other 
than their friendship, and good will. Even there discrimination is 
required in order to distinguish "fair weather" friends from those 
who will stand true in the future. 

Choose carefully, however, one society with which to affiliate 
yourself. Take into consideration the friends which you already 
have therein, the tastes and interests of the members, and the 
probability of the ease with which you may work with them. 
Their comradeship and association will aid you in getting more 
social value and enjoyment from your stay at college. Member- 
ship will entitle you to participation in many activities, and a 
closer and stronger relationship will spring up between yourself 
and your fellow members by virtue of your association. 

Choose a society — and join one. 


The flagrant disregard of international law and common hu- 
manity that has been exhibited both in the undeclared Sino-Jap- 
anese war and in the Spanish conflict, leads one in a speculative 
turn of mind to question the true worth of the technical culture 
we have evolved. Certainly this system of progress lies open to 
the charge levelled at it by Mark Twain in his book, THE MY- 
STERIOUS STRANGER. "It is a remarkable progress," says 
Mark Twain, "that in\five or six thousand years five or six high 
civilizations have flourished, commanded the wonder of the world, 
then faded out and disappeared; and not one of them except the 
latest ever invented any sweeping and adequate way to kill peo- 
ple. They all did their best — to kill being the chief est ambition of 
the human race, and the earliest incident in its history." 

The mad scramble of rearmament that characterizes most of 
the European nations at present, together with the weird mixture 
of dictator theology and militarism that holds sway over their 
minds, makes it difficult to deny such an indictment. The good 
features of our culture seem to have allied themselves with pro- 
portionate evils. "And what does it amount to?" says this im- 
partial observer of humanity, "You gain nothing; you always 
come out where you went in. Who gets a profit out of it? No- 
body but a parcel of usurping little monarchs and nobilities who 
despise you; would feel defiled if you touched them? whom you 

Prof. D. C. Carmean was busy dur- 
ing the early summer teaching in the 
Conservatory of Music during the 
Summer School Session. Accompan- 
ied by Mrs. Carmean, he visited in 
Ohio whe»e the National Air Races 
and the Great Lakes Exposition 
shared the spotlight with daily swim- 
ming and clay pigeon shooting. 

Dr. S. H. Derickson solicited new 
students from the various high 
schools of Pennsylvania and neighbor- 
ing states. Botanizing and tutoring 
at Mt. Gretna occupied the professor's 
late summer days. Short trips to 
various points of interest through- 
out the state rounded out a busy va- 

Dr. G. G. Struble attended the Sum- 
mer Session at Cornell University, 
Ithaca, N. Y., where he studied Dra- 
matics. Besides special work in acting, 
play production, and make-up, he took 
part in a play and acted as stage 
manager for another. After Summer 
School he spent a week roughing it 
at a cabin in the mountains near State 
College. The closing days of vacation 
were filled by working in the "Good 
Earth," hoeing beans. 

Dr. H. H. Shenk spent part of his 
vacation soliciting new students. He 
attended the meeting of the Pennsyl- 
vania Folk Festival at Bucknell Uni- 
versity, Lewisburg, Pa., as a member 
of the executive committee. Later in 
the summer he attended the Institute 
of Public Relations at Williams Col 

Dr. P. A. W. Wallace conducted 
courses at the Summer Session at 
Lebanon Valley. The remainder of the 
summer he spent delving into the life 
of Conrad Weiser. Gathering material 
for his book took him to the Court 
Houses at Reading and Lancaster, the 
Six Nations Reservation in Ontario, 
Syracuse, and the Catskill Mountains. 

Prof. E. P. Rutledge conducted 
courses at the University of Pennsyl- 
vania Summer Session. A trip to 
Iowa lasted for two weeks after which 
he golfed away the hours until school 
started in September. 

Dr. R. R. Butterwick taught in 
Summer School the first part of the 
vacation period. Following that he re- 
tired to his summer camp at Mount 
Gretna where he had charge of the 
religious training at the Mount Gret- 
na Campmeeting Grounds. 

Dr. A. H. M. Stonecipher rested and 
rusticated peacefully at his residence 
in Annville. 

Dr. G. A. Richie lectured in Sum- 
mer School. Upon the conclusion of 
Summer School he retreated to his 
cottage at Mount Gretna. For five 
weeks he was guest preacher at the 
Sixth Street of Harrisburg. 

"onserVatory Students 
Hear Noted Educator 

Thirteen seniors and three faculty 
members of the conservatory attended 
a meeting of the in and about Harris- 
burg Music Educator's Club of which 
Miss Mary E. Gillespie is president. The 
association met in John Harris High 
School on Tuesday evening. 

Following a delicious banquet, group 
singing was led by Dr. M. Claude Rosen- 
berry, head of the music education de- 
partment of the state of Pennsylvania. 

The speaker of the evening was Miss 
Lilla Belle Pitts, of Columbia Univer- 
sity. Miss Pitts, who was a classmate 
of Miss Gillespie and Mr. Rutledge, is 
the foremost educator in the field of 
music integration. Miss Pitts is super 
visor of music in Elizabeth, New Jersey, 
where her program of music integration 
had its spontaneous beginning. She is 
the author of "Music Integration in the 
Junior High School," a textbook which 
is used in our music department. 

Music integration or the integrated 
program is a program which is made to 
correlate in all branches of the school 
curriculum. Thus when one class is 
studying a certain subject or country in 
geography, the same class will be sing- 
ing and studying songs of the same coun- 
try in the music period.

cure restoration of the full appropj^ 
tion or an additional appropriation 

The cut in appropriation means a re 
duction in amount from 75 million doj 
lars to 45 millions and a drop i n ^ 
number of students aided from 3lo,oon 
to 220,000. The campaign for restr>r a 
tion includes special meetings, the send 
ing of the delegations to visit NYA ad 
ministrators, Governors, Congressmen 
and other officials, writing of letters tj 
President Roosevelt asking restoration 
of the full appreciation, and the regis- 
tration of students who need NYA aid 
on the campus. October 14 has been 
designated as the day for the expression 
of this opinion. Propaganda to this end 
has been circulated widely and a strenu- 
ous effort is being put forth to secure a 
restoration of the full 75 million dollar 

The N. S. F. A. has stressed the fact 
that a cut in government expenditures 
is not opposed as such. It is believed 
that the general issue of government 
economy is not involved. They regard it 
however as an unfair and unwarranted 
discrimination against youth. 


Sophomore Elections 

The Sophomore Class held its first 
meeting of the year on Monday, Sep- 
tember 20, to elect new officers. The 
following were the successful candi- 
dates: President, Phil Lester; Vice 
President, Elwood Brubaker; Secre- 
tary, Evelyn Miller; Treasurer, WMl- 
iam Bender; and Student Council 
Representatives, Ester Wise and 
John Moller. 

slave for, fight for, die for, and are 
not ashamed of it but proud; whose 
existence is a perpetual insult to you 
and you are afraid to resent it; who 
are medicants supported by your 
alms, yet assume toward you the airs 
of benefactor toward beggar." 

These observations may be apro- 
pos of the present situation in world 
affairs, and they may not. At any 
rate they provide matter for thought. 






In the hustle and bustle of getting 
ready for a year at college it's hard 
to think of everything - that letter 
you should have written— the engage- 
ment you can't keep— family matters 
— needed clothing. Whatever it is — 
a swift, personal telephone conversa- 
tion with someone back home will fix 
things in a jiffy. It's economical, too. Rates on calls of 42 miles 
or more are reduced after 7 every night and all day Sunday.

^orts Writer Scores 
Football as New Evil 

Bad Effect on Players 

gays Frank Scully in Ma- 

football makes addled-brained 
tumble-backs of its players. That is 
indictment leveled today against 
j, e nation's leading amateur sport by 
r ank Scully, noted author, who at- 
• butes his invalidism to the drub- 
. _ he took in school competitions. 
Reporting the results of a survey 
made of the leading players of 
verity years ago, Scully declares in 



e current Liberty magazine 
any °f these who weren't killed in 
World War either died from tu- 
berculosis or are now addled-brained 
dim wits. 

"After careful study I have come to 
the conclusion that you don't have to 
be a half-wit to be a half-back, but 
if you are a half-back long enough 


will be," he writes. 

Scully relates a meeting with Char- 
lie Barrett, former all-America quar- 
terback at Cornell and captain of the 
1916 unbeaten team. Barrett was in 
the last stages of t.b., just before 
^ death. "He told me," says Scully, 
"that six members of that champion- 
ship 1916 squad had also broken down 
with t.b. Barrett's confession was the 
greatest mass indictment of varsity 
football I had run into up to that 

But, says the writer, their fate was 
less pitiful than others whose brains 
could not stand the constant vicious 
jarring. He relates the experience of 
one Coast championship team: "Of 
the three stars in the backfield, all 
named on one All-America team or 
another, subsequently one broke his 
neck in his last season and therefore 
missed his chance of becoming a com- 
plete stumble-back; the second ended 
his undergraduate days by walking on 
his heels; and third was so punch- 
drunk from too much football that he 
could see no way out except playing 
more football, either as a profession- 
al or as an assistant coach.

Proves Too Powerful for

Regarded as Favorable 

Powerful Running Attack 
Developed; St. Lawrence 
Topped by Hard Playing 

Pointing for their second win in 
three starts, the Mules of Muhlen- 
berg will trot out their full strength 
against Lebanon Valley on Satur- 
day, renewing their series after a 
one-year lapse. 

The Allentown aggregation was 
fortunate enough to emerge from the 
St. Lawrence fracas on Friday night 
with only a sprinkling of bruises and 
scratches. The Mules, vastly im- 
proved since their disastrous 7-6 de- 
feat at the hands of Catawba a week 
earlier, rebounded to subdue a fight- 
ing St. Lawrence eleven, 18-6, show- 
ing flashes of irrespressible power. 

Very little information concerning 
the Muhlenberg squad is available, 
but the downstaters are said to have 
a number of veterans around which 
Coach Julian has succeeded in mold- 
ing a formidable machine. If the Mules 
can develop consistency in their run- 
ning attack, which proved so devas- 
tating at times against St. Lawrence, 
the outlook for the Dutchmen will 
be anything but bright.

Shenk, a veteran of two years' varsity 
experience, fell before the fine stroking 
of W. Honker of the Lebanon Country 
Club to the tune of 6-3; 6-3. The closest 
of the singles matches was the one be- 
tween Dan Seiverling, L. V. C, and C. 
Harmes. The Blue and White racquet 
wielder put up a terrific fight in the firsl 
set, but was forced to succumb 8-6. 
Harmes then proceeded to run out the 
second set 6-3. Rog Say lor scored the 
only L. V. C. win by subduing Mrs. G. 
Harmes, female star of the Lebanon 
Country Club, by a 6-1; 6-2 count. 

Both doubles matches resulted in three 
set victories for the visitors. Shenk and 
Seiverling played sensationally in the 
econd set, but not so well in the first 
and third sets, thereby losing 6-0; 3-6; 
6-2. In the other encounter Donmoyer 
and Ax, who in the past were both prom 
inent members of the Blue and White 
team, overcame the team of Umberger 
and Saylor 6-4; 2-6; 6-4, The latter pal 
put up a great fight, but could not quite 
keep up the terrific pace set by thei 
opponents. The result of this match 
seems to indicate that the team will not 
be as strong as some that have repre 
sented Lebanon Valley in the past.

New Two-Manual Organ

intensely aroused over the prospect 
of his having to shoulder a gun in the 
near future in a new war, and also 
in learning how such a catastrophe 
can be prevented. The only defect in 
the adoption of this question would 
be the fact that colleges in neighbor- 
ing states would be using the na- 
tional association's question, thus 
forcing the dropping of interstate de- 
bates or the use of more than one 
question. Most of the colleges present 
indicated their unwillingness to fol- 
low the latter procedure. 

The subject of radio debates was 
reported upon. The audience was in- 
formed that radio debating requires 
a different technique from straight de- 
bating, one aspect being the writing 
of manuscripts or briefs. The need 
of a sponsor was stressed by the Al- 
bright delegation. They stated that 
without such a motive as a sponsor or 
a contest the debates did not bring 
forth much response from the radio 
audience, even when it was made plain 
that comment or communication 
would be welcomed. The danger of 
being "sold out" to a commercial 
program was mentioned, this being 
all the more possible when time for 
the debates is donated by the station 
without cost. 

Bucknell Junior College's applica- 
tion for admission to the association 
was voted down in a blanket refusal 
to admit any junior college or college 
without a full four year accredited 
course. St. Vincent College was un- 
animously accepted as a new member, 
while the application of Moravian 
College was tabled for a year until 
its debating administration and man - 
agement should come up to the stand- 
ards of the association.

Muhlenberg Installs 
Dr. Tyson as New Head 

Dr. Lynch, Dr. Stonecipher Rep- 
resent Respective Institutions 

Representatives from more than 
150 educational institutions and 
learned societies were present last 
weekend at Muhlenberg College for 
the inauguration of her fifth presi- 
dent, Dr. Levering Tyson. 

Dr. Tyson was formally installed as 
president on Saturday morning in the 
college chapel in an impressive serv- 
ice, broadcast over a coast-to-coast 
National Broadcasting hook-up. The 
principal speaker was Dr. Frederick 
P. Keppel, president of the Carnegie 
Corporation. The charge was deliv- 
ered by Dr. E. P. Pfatteicher, presi- 
dent of the Ministerium of Pennsyl- 
vania, while Dr. Reuben J. Butz, pre- 
sident of the board of trustees in- 
stalled Dr. Tyson. 

An academic symposium was held 
on Friday evening following the in- 
augural dinner with the theme, "What 
the Professions expect of the Small 
Liberal Arts College." In six-minute 
talks eight men and one woman, 
whose names are hallmarks in Am- 
erican professional life, pointed to 
those standards of training that their 
respective callings expect of the small 
colleges and discussed some of the 
conditions that confront their pro- 
fessions. Dr. Walter A. Jessup, presi- 
dent of the Carnegie Foundation for 
the Advancement of Teaching presid- 
ed at the Symposium. 

Dr. Clyde A. Lynch represented 
Lebanon Valley College at the in- 
auguration and the symposium, while

ed his alma mater, Vanderbilt.

hot'els. Take Ernie Weirick, for instance 
— we always thought he was a nice chap 
until a few nights ago, when a disputed 
point arose in his room concerning the 
exact text of a Biblical quotation. "We 
are sure it is this way, Mr. Weirick," 
said we. 

"And I," said Ernie, "am s'wre it is 
this way." 

"Let us," interpolated some one, "in- 
vestigate the matter, In short, let's look 
it up. Do you have a Bible, Mr. Wei- 
rick ?" 

Mr. Weirick thought he had. In fact, 
he was sure he had, as he proved to the 
satisfaction of sundry and all by pro- 
ducing it. 

Alas and alack, though, 'tis our sad 
duty to report, upon the cover in letters 
of gilt was stamped the legend, "This 
is a Gideon Bible." 

It is for shame. 

Heavy Bucknell Team 

Outscores L. V. C. 13-0 

{Continued from page 1) 

L. V. C. 17. Tomasetti was then 
thrown for a 4-yai'd loss but he and 
Funair reached the three yard line in 
the next three plays. Two plays later 
Tomasetti crossed the line for the first 
score of the evening. Quick then 
booted the extra point from place- 
ment to make the score 7-0. Follow- 
ing the next kick-off Eddie Kress ran 
34 yards from scrimmage for the 
biggest Lebanon Valley gain of the 
evening. This rally was subsequently 
squelched by an intercepted paLs. For 
the remainder of the half the ball 
stayed near mid-field. 

The third period consisted mainly of 
a series of punts. The Bucknell team, 
however, gained mope ground be- 
tween punts so the Blue and White 
gradually got pushed back. Penalties 
halted promising rallies of both teams. 

Bill Garland opened the final quar- 
ter by punting to the Bucknell 35 
from which point it was returned to 
the 48. On the third play Funair made 
a first down on the L. V. C. 40. To- 
masetti then reeled off a 20-yard gain 
to the 20. Funair and Tomasetti ad- 
vanced the ball 5 yards on the next 
three plays before the former made 
a first down on the 5. After three 
plays the ball rested on the 6-inch 
line. Then Funair, on a reverse from 
Tomasetti, went over the weak side 
of the line for the second and final 
touchdown of the evening. Quick suc- 
cessfully booted the ball between the 
bars for the extra point but an in- 
fraction of the rules cost Bucknell the 
point. They had to try again from 
the 17-yard line but the kick fell 
short. With a 50-yard dash by To- 
masetti as an impetus the Bisons 
threatened again in the closing min- 
utes of the game. The game ended 
as Lebanon Valley took the ball on 
downs on their own 1-yard line. 

A recapitulation reveals that the 
winners gained a total of 420 yards 
by rushing against 146 for the losers. 
Bucknell lost a total of 70 yards on 
penalties while Lebanon Valley lost 
only 10. The first downs were Buck- 
nell— 13, L. V. C— 7. The Flying 
Dutchmen completed two passes 
while the Bisons failed to complete 
one. Bucknell intercepted 3 passes; 
Lebanon Valley 1. Lebanon Valley's 
punts averaged 37.7 yards as to 38.4 
yards for the Bucknellians. Kress' 
last punt, good for only 19 yards, 
pulled his average down considerably. 


A large and appreciative audience 
heard the organ recital presented by 
Marcel Dupre on the organ of the Her- 
shey Community Theatre on Tuesday ev- 
ening. Mr. Dupre is the foremost French 
organist of his day. He was assisted 
in an organ and piano selection by his 
daughter, Miss Marguerite Dupre. 

The organist displayed great technical 
ability and played a varied program 
ranging from the works of Bach and 
Handel to the modern American com- 
poser, Lowerby. Mr. Dupre showed a 
great love for modern harmonies, and 
his program contained several selections 
of his own composition which were dis- 
tinctly modern.

The curtain in Engle Hall went up 
last Friday night on a gala occasion — 
the four society joint session. Agne. 
Jlorris, president of the Delphian Lit- 
era ry Society, gave the introduction 
an d the curtain opened to the tune of 
the Lebanon Baloney theme song 
which preceded Prof. Quiz's question- 
box program. Prof. Quiz (alias Anna 
Morrison) puzzled the various con- 
testants with some very original and 
clever questions. A link of Lebanon 
Baloney went to the winner, and the 
program closed with Greta Heiland, 
Agnes Morris, and Anna Morrison 
singing the theme song. 

Dean Aungst, as Master of Cere- 
monies, gave a short welcoming ad-

and James Ralston in a two piano

Shenk Meets L. W. R. 

Professor H. H. Shenk was the 
speaker in a meeting of the Life 
Work Recruits, held last Thursday 
evening in North Hall parlor. Dr. 
Shenk spoke impressively on the cru- 
cial crises that must be faced and

by Paul Horn, Howard Peffley, the

with prayer. 

The schedule of Recruit deputa- 
tions is now being drawn up by Paul

Green Blotter Announces 
Eight New Vacancies 

In accordance with the announcement 
made recently in chapel, the Green Blot- 
ter, honorary society for undergraduate 
writers, confirms the report made at that 
time that there are eight vacancies to 
be filled at the present time. 

Admission to this organization may 
be secured only after the incumbent 
members of the society have approved 
a. manuscript submitted by the applicant. 
Therefore, all persons wishing to be- 
come members should hand in to Dr. 
Struble, Green Blotter faculty adviser, 
a copy of something they have written 
before the end of October, which is the 
limit for all applications during the 
present semester. 

The members hold a monthly meeting 
at the home of Dr. Struble at some con^ 
venient date, on which occasion every- 
one is expected to present his latest 
work for criticism. The Ink Spots — as 
members are called in their own circle — 
also discuss current literary trends and

Barbara Sloane was elected Anniver-

As yet no definite plans have been

Several Lost Opportunities 
Largely Responsible for 
Valley Defeat 

La Vie Collegienne Goes to a Party 

Suffering a relapse after a creditable 
showing against Bucknell in the open- 
ing game, Lebanon Valley's gridiron 
machine disappointed its followers with 
a slipshod exhibition against Muhlen- 
berg's Mules last Saturday, tossing the 
game into the Allentowners' laps by a 
score of 14-0. 

The relapse was wholly a mental one, 
as Valley men committed one tactical 
error after another. Punts were caught 
by the Blue and White safety man on 
the goal line, potential touchdown passes 
were dropped by ends and other eligible 
receivers, punts were attempted on the 
second down just as the Blue and White 
offensive would begin to move. A touch- 
down was booted away when an L. V. C. 
man, racing for a certain score, tossed 
an illegal pass. In short, almost every 
conceivable "faux pas" was pulled by the 
Flying Dutchmen during the game. 

The first and most costly blunder came 
early in the first period when Ed Kress, 
Lebanon Valley signal-caller, elected to 
punt on the second clown with the ball 
on Valley's 41-yard line. As he attempt- 
ed to get the ball away a brigade of 
enemy linemen charged him, blocked the 
kick, and recovered on the Dutchmen's 
20-yard stripe. Seven plays later, Gute- 
kunst skirted right end for three yards 
and a score. Reichwein calmly converted 
to make the score read 7-0. 

Midway in the second quarter the 
Annville rooters' hopes revived consid- 
erably when Fridinger intercepted a 
Muhlenberg pass on the Mules' 48. Kress 
then faded back and tossed a pass to 
Tony Rozman in the clear, but the ball

Members of Der Deutsche Verein 
met in conclave on Tuesday night in 
the "inner sanctum" of West Hall for 
the first meeting of the year. 

A very lengthy discussion of busi- 
ness took place during which it was 
decided that one dollar dues should 
be paid by each member. The treas- 
urer, Theresa Stefan, announced a 
balance in the treasury from last 
year. It was also definitely decided 
that two one-act plays should be pro- 
duced by the club next January. One 
of these would be a German comedy 
or tragedy, while the other would be 
produced in Pennsylvania German. 
Committees were appointed to secure 
suitable plays. It was also decided 
that club members should adapt the 
plays to audiences in this community. 

The chairman of the program com-

Oh, These Collegians 

Wellesley, Mass. — Socrates' classic admonition, "Know thyself" is being 
taken seriously by Wellesley College. Young women who entered the school 
for the first time this fall were given four tests arranged to make them re- 
view their own attributes and consult their own experience. 

Two of the tests have been used since 1932; two were given for the first 
time this fall. Following are some of the controversial statements and ques- 
tions, from the alternatives of which the students are asked to indicate a per- 
sonal preference, included in one of the tests: 

"Because of the aggressive and self-assertive nature of man the aboli- 
tion of war is an illusory ideal. Yes. No. 

"If you were a university profe:sor and had the necessary ability, would 
you prefer to teach (a) poetry; (b) chemistry and physics?" 

The test is designed to show the relative emphasis the students place on 
theoretical, economic, esthetic, social, political and religious values. 

The other test is a "Personality Inventory" which asks the student if 
she blushes easily, makes new friends easily, finds it difficult to get rid of 
salesmen, is troubled with the idea that people on the street are watching her. 
The resulting answers indicate any tendencies toward developed neuroses 
and phychoses. 


Evanston, 111. — Development of a mechanical "inner ear" to help deaf and 
deaf-blind persons to learn to speak was announced recently at Northwestern 
University. Dr. Louis D. Goodfellow of the psychology department devised 
the new "ear" and named it the Gault multi-tactor, for Dr. Robert H. Gault, 
professor of psychology at Northwestern and director-general of the Am- 
erican institute for the deaf-blind. 

The device translates sound into vibrations, so the subject, unable to 
hear, can get the "feeling" of sounds and, by association, learn to produce 

The machine contains thousands of strings which, its developer said, 
"analyse the human voice into its component tones, and this makes sound in- 
telligible to the human mind." 


Austin, Texas — "Prim" was the adjective applied to coeds back in the 
1890's — at least by the masculine contingent at the University of Texas. 

Coeds now, with their impatience with the 11 p. m. curfew in force on 
the campus, are a far cry from earlier sisters who were bold even to attend a 
coeducational school. 

Here are a few of the regulations concerning that incredible creature, 
the "prim" coed: 

(1) It was extremely improper to be seen walking, on an afternoon, in 
the park with a masculine fellow-student. 

(2) The height in refined entertainment consisted in getting together 
a few guitars and mandolins, some members of the girls glee-club, a few — 
very few — sterling young men, plenty of chaperones including the dean of 
women, chartering a boat and going for an afternoon cruise up the river. 
And it meant home by sunset! 

(3) Girls who were invited to eat at the "ladies table" in the men's din- 
ing hall were accompanied by the dean of women. 

(4) Young men and women were kept apart except on a few gala oc- 
casions, when the chaperones took their duties seriously. 



In answer to the call for new blood 
which La Vie issued last week, there 
was a gratifying response in the persons 
of several young ladies of the freshman 
class who arrived in the offices of this 
publication on Tuesday afternoon seek- 
ing various staff positions. 

The editor delivered his brief address 

form 3-a — concerning the five "W's," 
the use of leads, and what happens to 
people who end articles with "A good 
time was had by all." 

There seems, strangely enough, to be 
a large number of charming young la- 
dies who positively yearn to write col- 
umns, poetry, and movie reviews, but, 
alas and alack, none very anxious to 
pound a beat finding out who was elect- 
ed president of the Whatzis Club, and 
what became of the lights in the halls 
of the Men's Dorm, or where the Life 
Work Recruits were seeing the Light 
over the week-end. 

And stranger yet, among all these 
damosels seeking the perilous existence 
incumbent upon a follower of the jour- 
nalistic profession, there was not more 
than one lone male student. Therefore, 
La Vie wishes to announce at this time 
that it will consider enrolling in its 
training school several promising gen- 
tlemen of the Freshman class, especially 
those interested in becoming reporters. 
There is a strong possibility that one 
from among their number may become 
editor-in-chief in a few years, or that a 
few more of them will attain positions 
on the staff in later years of importance

for instance, but two years ago was club 

Applicants should have a fair com 
mand of correct English as well as a 
sense of originality — which, however, 
they must learn to apply only with the 
greatest discretion, the situation bein 
what it is with regard to libel suits jus 1 ", 
at present. Besides this, they must be 
willing to hand in articles before, not 
after, a specified deadline, and, above 
all, be able to follow directions. 

Eclectic Club Meets 

The Eclectic Club held a social 
meeting on Wednesday, October ti, at 
the home of Catherine Mills. All the 
members were there. Hazel Hemin- 
way and Arlene Hoffman were the 
hostesses. Hot dogs and marshmal- 
lows were roasted in the fire-place. 

At the next meeting of the club ten 
new members will be elected to fill 
the vacancies caused by graduation. 

Benders to Attend 

Lab Dedication 


At 4 o'clock in the afternoon on Tues- 
day, October 12, the upperclass mem- 
bers of the Young Women's Christian 
Association sponsored a tea social for 
Freshmen and new students of the or- 
ganization. The tea was conducted in 
the North Hall parlors and dining 
rooms. Lucille Maberry, president of the 
Y. W. C. A., stated that Mrs. Wallace 
and Miss Gillespie were scheduled to 
pour tea for the company. Dainties tu 
be consumed by the freshmen included 
cookies, tea, and cocoa. 

Entertainment was derived from 
games of cards and other competitions. 
The general atmosphere was genial, 
serving to bring the new students into 
closer intimacy and fellowship within 
the organization of the Association. 


Biology Club Elects 

Last spring, shortly before exami- 
nations, a group of students met to 
form a club in the Biology depart- 
ment. Work on the constitution was 
carried on during the summer, and 
ideas concerning meetings and proj- 
ects were considered. The following 
officers were chosen: President — Es- 
ther Flom; Vice President— John 
Marberger; Secretary — George La- 
zorjack; Treasurer — John Walmer. 

The faculty advisers are Dr. S. H. 
Derickson and Dr. V. Earl Light. 

The purpose of the club is to furth- 
er interest in the biological sciences 
by supplementing work in the class- 
room, and to stimulate library and 
laboratory research. Membership is 
limited to those who are willing and 
able to cooperate in all the scientific 
endeavors of the club. 


Speakers Will Include Many 
Prominent Chemists 

Dr. and Mrs. Bender will attend the 
dedication of the new chemistry labora- 
tory at the University of Delaware, 
Newark, Delaware. Prominent speakers 
will include Doctors Norris, Howe, and 
Taylor who are leaders in the field of 
chemistry. Dr. Bender will represent 
Lebanon Valley College at the dedica- 

On Friday Dr. Shenk will attend the 
meeting of the Pennsylvania Historical 
Association as a member of the council. 
This meeting will be held at the Hotel 
Brunswick in Lancaster. 

Dr. Richie will deliver a Rally Day 
address on October 17th at Lawn, Pa. 

Dr. Richie will be one of the discus- 
sion leaders at the Leadership Training 
Conference which is being held in Her- 
shep October 13, 14, and 15. 

Mrs. Bender attended the Sunday- 
School convention on Wednesday and 
Thursday at Hershey. 

Bayard Hauunond, '29, visited Dr. 
Derickson last Saturday and Sunday. 
Mr. Hammond received his doctor's de- 
gree in botany at Johns Hopkins Uni- 
versity last year, and is at present en- 
gaged in research work. The purpose of 
his visit was to obtain new material in 
this locality to supplement information 
previously obtained here. This material 
is used in his research work.

There has also been a growth i n 
the number of courses offered i n 
Annville this year, and a notable shift 
to evening extension classes has been 
marked on the campus. 

Thirty persons registered for one

The Collegiate R 


(By Associated Collegiate Press) 

The University of Texas claims the distinction of having the only self- 
supporting student union in the country. 

Add new ways of gate-crashing: Sophomores at Purdue rode down the 
Union dumbwaiter in order to gain admittance to the freshman mixer in the 
Union ballroom. And then were ejected! 

Students dancing to swing music — 1200 of them — generate enough heat 
to warm a two-story house for two days in ordinary winter weather. Enough 
energy is released to raise a five-ton elephant 32 miles in the air. So sayeth 
an engineer at the University of Wisconsin. 

Three hundred blurry-eyed, under-s'ept Ohio State freshmen congregated 
in the men's gymnasium upon a Wednesday morning and waited. They waited 
half an hour for the rest of their class to arrive for freshman convocation^ 
Then one of them looked at his program card to find the meeting scheduled 
for 8 p. m., not 8 a. m. 

The human propensity for taking seats in the back row, prompted P 1 ' ' 
fessor Scott at the University of Minnesota to request his students to mo ve 
forward and use up the front seats. All came forward except one lad W° 
kept his remote seat. "Move down to the front please," said the prof- 
can't," the boy said, "I tore my pants." 

College training is of little use to a railroader, according to Union .. P Jg 
cific officials. It makes it harder for him to endure the monotonous detail 
will find in railroading. t 

Discovering he was a man, the Delta Delta Delta sorority chapter ¥ d 
Butler University struck Joy Lively's name from the rushing list. He - 
received a number of invitations to parties from sorority chairmen. ^ 

Dartmouth College enrollment figures show a gain of just two stude 
over last year. t 

Sorority pledges at the University of New Hampshire are convinced 
the quickest way of losing five pounds in ten days, is to go through " rU pj-t- 

A special committee appointed by President Ernest M. Hopkins of 
mouth will study the organization and procedures of student pubh ca 
and make recommendations for their improved administration. ^i- 

The only male enrolled in the home economics course at PurdU g hm an 
versity must wear a bright pink power-puff sewed to the top of his fr eS 
cap. He wants to become a dietitian. 

Sheer irony — freshmen at the University of Michigan are no lon ^ in 
quired to wear "pots." But the class of '41 has donned them aga *" m0i - 
effort to unify the class in order to win the class games from the top 

"All freshman must ask permission of a member of the stude " s hn^ 11 
for every date." This new ruling elicited groans of despair from 
at Midland College, Fremont, Nebraska.

College Men in the Major Leagues 


1 As each succeeding baseball season comes along 

i ^^HHHHI seems to Lie more definite trend toward filling 

1 | tne major league ranks with college men. The day is 

not far off when probably half of the men in the "big 
show" will get their starts in colleges. Although very 
few men can step right off the campus into the major 
leagues, it has been done. This past season there were 
only four prominent players who had done this trick. 
These were Frankie Frisch (Fordham), Ted Lyons 
(Baylor), Luke Sewell (Alabama), and Ethan Allen 

All the others needed a year or more in the minors, 
but their college activities proved valuable anyway. Lebanon Valley's gift 
to baseball, Charlie Gelbert, spent two years in the "bushes" before he could 
m ake the grade with the St. Louis Cardinals. In fact his first year was spent 
in the Class C Western Association, but progress was rapid. Although never 
a great hitter in spite of his .300 World's Series average, he always was a 
steady fielder. 

The collegiate proving grounds seem to be exceptionally productive 
proving grounds for pitchers. Such fine hurlers as Elden Auker (Kansas 
A. & M -), Tommy Bridges (Tennessee), Bill Lee (Louisiana State), John 
Murphy (Fordham), Hal Schumacher (St. Lawrence), and Monte Weaver 
(Emory & Henry) have gladdened the hearts of their managers often. Weav- 
er has spent considerable time as an Instructor of Mathematics at the Uni- 
versity of Virginia. 

The most distinguished college man in the game is Burgess Whitehead, 
second baseman of the New York Giants, National League champions. White- 
head, a graduate of the University of North Carolina, attained the aim of 
all students, a Phi Beta Kappa membership. 

Orchids to Carl Snavely 

For many years Cornell has been a major football team which won very 
few major victories. This season the story is quite different. The "Big Red" 
has met and subdued thus far three major opponents, Penn State, Colgate, 
and Princeton. Who is the coach that was able to bring on this about-face 
above Cayuga's waters? He is none other than Carl Snavely, Lebanon Val- 
ley '15. Snavely's praises are being sung wherever football is discussed. He 
is almost a miracle man. 

Prior to his being appointed head coach at Cornell, Snavely held similar- 
posts at Bucknell University and the University of North Carolina. At the 
former institution he developed teams which made the whole football world 
sit up and take notice. Annually his team visited New York and gave Ford- 
ham a battle royal. One year he upset the Rams, thereby eliminating Ford- 
ham from Rose Bowl consideration, while his own team proceeded to finish 
the season undefeated. His tenure at Chapel Hill was equally successful. He 
put N. C. U. on the map in short order. One year he had the Rose Bowl invi- 
tation in his grasp only to see it disappear in thin air when his boys were up- 
set in the season's finale. 

This year he has another chance to make the Rose Bowl, a slim chance 
indeed, but a real chance. The obstacles in his way are Syracuse, Yale, Col- 
umbia, Dartmouth, and Penn. Victories over all these teams would win Carl 
Snavely the position as the season's greatest coach. Don't forget, Carl, your 
old Alma Mater, Lebanon Valley is 100% behind you!

Muhlenberg Subdues 

Blue and White, 14-0 

(Continued from page 1) 

oozed through the receiver's fingers. 
Kress' next pass was intercepted by Sta- 
mus on Muhlenberg's 34. Failing to gain 
the Mules kicked to Valley's 30. 

On the first play Rosen gained seven 
yards through center. Kuhn passed to 
Tryan who lateraled to Walk for two 
yards. Walk, attempting to punt, was 
roughed and Lebanon Valley was given 
a first down on the Mules' 30. At this 
point Walk passed to Frey who lateraled 
to Davies, the latter scampering toward 
pay-off territory with an open field be- 
fore him. Reaching the 10-yard line, 
Davies tossed a forward lateral ro 
Streeter who was downed six yards short 
of the "promised land." The play was 
immediately called back, however, and a 
few seconds later the half ended. 

Muhlenberg's second tally of the game 
was garnered when an alert Muhlenberg 
man recovered Tryan's fumbled lateral 
on the home team's 29 late in the third 
quarter. From there the Mules marched 
71 yards on a sustained drive for a 
touchdown, Heffner scoring, and Reich- 
wein again converting, giving the final 
figures 14-0. 

In spite of this rather disappointing 
showing, the picture for the future is 
bright. The team will undoubtedly be 
much better for having gone through 
last week's ordeal. The boys have the 
potential power, but as yet it has not 
blossomed forth. One of these Saturdays 
the Blue and White banner will fly high; 
in fact, with the team on the rebound. 
Delaware beware! 



The girls' hockey team is starting 
its season with a game with the Har- 
risburg Hockey Association. The con- 
test is scheduled for 3 o'clock on the 
college hockey-field in the rear of 
North Hall this Saturday afternoon. 

Coach Henderson has been drilling 
the team and hopes to show the spec- 
tators a good game on Saturday. The 
team lost only two players through 
graduation last spring, Eleanor Lynch, 
right inner, and Anna Orth, left full- 

A seven game schedule has been 
drawn up, including contests with 
Lancaster, Albright, Susquehanna 
University, Shippensburg State Teach- 
ers College, Harrisburg Hockey As- 
sociation, and Linden Hall. In addi- 
tion a two day play-day at Philadel- 
phia Cricket Club and a play-day at 
Cedar Crest College are scheduled. 


Tuesday noon President John Walmer 
called a meeting of the Senior Class to 
discuss some important business items. 
At the wish of the class, President Wal- 
mer appointed a committee for com- 
mencement programs and invitations. The 
committee, which consists of Sylva, Har- 
clerode, Hazel Heminway, Adolph Cap- 
ka, John Gongloff, Charles Raub, and 
Paul Ulrich, met agents of a novelty 
printing company who were on the cam- 
pus yesterday. 

Because of the financial status of the 
class, a motion was passed to the effect 
that no class dues would be collected for 
the senior year. The financial outlook 
was further discussed, but no additional 
action was taken. 

A committee composed of Ernestine 
Jagnesak and Agnes Morris was ap- 
pointed to buy flowers for Ella Mason 
who is in the Lebanon Good Samaritan 
Hospital with an attack of appendicitis. 

Delaware Gridders 


Eighth Game of Twenty- 
Eight- Year-Old Series to 
Break Tie 

Saturday afternoon Coach "Jerry" 
Frock leads his gridiron warriors below 
the Mason and Dixon line to do battle 
with the University of Delaware grid- 
ders. When the teams take the field they 
will be even in almost every respect. So 
far this season each team has played, 
two games and each is still seeking its 
first triumph. The Delaware-Lebanon 
Valley series stands all even also. Dela- 
ware won in 1909 (6-0), 1911 (23-0), and 
1919 (20-0). The Flying Dutchmen came 
out on top in 1933 (13-6), 1934 (24-0), 
and 1935 (18-0). The 19l2 encounter re- 
sulted in a scoreless tie. In these seven 
battles the composite score is Delaware 
—55, Lebanon Valley — 52. Could any 
situation be any more interesting? 

The Delaware footballers fell before 
the Ursinus Bears in their 1937 debut 
by a 11-6 count, despite the fact that 
they completely outplayed the Pennsyl- 
vanians. Last Saturday the boys from 
the Eastern Shore stepped out their 
class and took on the Rutgers University 
team. The New Jersey outfit triumphed 
27-0, but this is no disgrace from a Del- 
aware point of view. In fact, it should 
only serve to toughen up the boys from 
du Pont's state. 

By the time the teams take the field 
several of Coach Frock's invalids should 
be ready to return to the battlefield. 
Against Muhlenberg such talented per- 
formers as Coda Sponaugle, Stanley 
Bulota, Frank Rozman, and Bernard 
Grabusky were forced to view the game 
from the sidelines due to various ail-

or rather a smoky atmosphere filled 
with jokes and the odor of drinks —

After greetings were extended by 
the president, John Gongloff, the 
opening speech was delivered by Al-

prominent Kalo members as Mr. J.

presidents of Kalo, George Smeltzer, 
Paul Hershey, Fred Gruber, Bill

were there to join in with the fun. 

All who attended had a great time 
and much of the credit may be given 
to the various committees. The pro-

der the direction of George Yokum 
followed by the distribution of re-

Lloyd Berger and David Beyerly may 
be given credit.

By Archie, the Anarchist 

W. A. A. Holds Hike 

In our ignorant, proletariat way we al- 
ways had looked up to Latin professors 
with awe and respect, not to mention 
wonder at the way they seem always to 
have the right translation. But now their 
sins have found them out, and the day 
of reckoning has come. We decided to 
cheat a bit the other afternoon and went 
to the library to get a trot. 

"Sorry," said the girl — who didn't look 
sorry at all, "they're all out." 

"Out!" says we, "out?" Just like that. 
"Who has them out?" 

"Why-uh," sez she, "Prof. Stoneci- 

Tch, tch. 


Last week we announced that our mis 
sion is to protect the innocent Frosh, 
help the downfallen, and borrow money 
from the editor. And this week we re- 
iterate said policy — especially in the 
case of designing women like Miss Kath 
erine Zwally whose purty new coat i: 
all covered with tar or something ac- 
quired while she was leading a nameless 
Frosh astray out somewhere in the vi 
cinity of Kreider's bridge the other 
night. The Frosh is nameless, of course, 
because we don't want to cause trouble 
for the poor chap. But we do wish some 
one would tell us his name. 


Mrs. Black, wife unto Prof. Black, is 
feeling veddy, veddy young these days 
since Margie Bordewell aske.l her whetn- 
er or not she is a Jigger Board member. 
Our ungracious reporter did not inquire 
how Mis; Bordewell is feeling. 


As long as people are discreet enough 
to shut the door at open house there is 
more goes on than meets the eye. That, 
at least, is the opinion of Madame Green 
who popped into the apartment of cer- 
tain young women last Sunday while a 
couple of chaps were about. The 
madame, however, withdrew with a po- 
lite, "Pardon me, perhaps I'm intrud- 
ing," before we could find out where 
the fire wai. 


We are pleased to note that Miss 
Dreas has heeded our advice to beware 
of smooth young men like Willie Scher- 
fel. She left him flat at the dance last 
Saturday in favor of a handsome young 
man into whose arms she rushed — by 
mistake, of course— in the dark. Seems 
she didn't discover her error until the 
dance was over, and by that time Willie 
had gone home in a huff. 


Not being jealous by nature, we hesi- 
tate to broach this question, but just the 
same, we'd like to know what Pete Frid- 
inger has that we haven't which causes 
all the beyootiful inhabitants of South 
Hall to cut his picture out of the paper 
and paste it in various prominent places 
on the collective South Hall bureaus. 
You can never tell— there may be Com- 
munists at the bottom of this.

students. The hike was planned by 
the W. A. A. cabinet. The function

also the means of entering the organ-

welcome by Miss Henderson, director 
of the W. A. A., Dorothy Kreamer, 
president of the association, took 
charge of the program. Refreshments 
and games were then the order of 
the evening.

Thomas Guinivan delivered the talk at 
the weekly prayer service held in Philo 
Hall on Wednesday, October G, 1937. 
The service which was unusually well at- 
tended was led in devotions by Edward 
Cathers and in the closing prayer by 
John Ness. The speaker took his topic 
from the mottoes on a calendar and 
idapted them to the theme of ways of 
showing kindness. A cheery smile and 
a pleasant hello were suggested by the 
speaker as the best means of spreading

a sort of Johnsonian colloquy. This state- 
ment is not intended to convey, how- 
ever, that the talk can be monopolized 
by conversational lions to the exclusion 
of the more timid, because, as a matter 
of fact, within the club, the campus 
caste-system is ignored, the only aris 
tocracy tolerated being one of intellect 
and culture. 

Vacancies are usually filled in such a 
way that there are two persons of each 
sex from each class among the represen 
tation, making a total of sixteen mem- 
bers when all vacancies are filled. This 
rule, however, can be, ami frequently 
is disregarded in cases where it would 
force the club to deny the privileges of

show particular talent. Hence, members 
of all classes from Freshman to Senior

ready four Senior members. 

Manuscripts submitted by prospective 
members are judged anonymously so that 
there is no opportunity for a display of 
partisanship in the selection of new 
members. This judgment is rendered on 
a basis of literary merit only, and no 
other considerations are permitted to en-

Klatsch," and a "Pennsylvania- 
Deutscher Nacht" are some of the 
programs that will be arranged for 
future meetings. An alumnus and 
ex-president, Edgar Messerschmidt, 
gave some valuable suggestions along 
this line. 

The program of the evening was 
featured by an informal chat by Herr 
Gert Gutstein with club members. 
The speaker told of the foods he has 
eaten since his arrival in the United 
States of which he knew nothing be- 
fore. He also explained the methods 
of traveling in Germany, stating that 
practically all Germans travel third 
class today. The fourth class has en- 
tirely disappeared and it is said that 
only army officers and foolish Am- 
ericans travel first class. He aLo 
compared the public school system 
of Germany with that of the United 
States. Prior to Hitler's rise to power 
a German student had only a three 
weeks vacation annually. However, 
since 1935 this period has been in- 
creased to six weeks. On the whole 
the German Ltudent spends more time 
in class than the American student. 

Coffee and tea, prepared by Dr. 
Lietzau herself in correct German 
fashion, was served wth doughnuts 
and pretzels. During the process of 
eating the club sang "Die Lorelei," 
which song, incidentally, is banned 
in Germany by the Nazi officials. 

Any students interested in the Ger- 
man language and people are invited 
to join the club by appearing at the 
next meeting. 

Wig and Buckle to Give 
One Act Play on Oct. 30 

October 30 will be the date set for 
the first play of the year. "Wurzel- 
Flummery," a one act play by A. A. 
Milne will be given by the Wig and 
Buckle on this date. The cast of the 
play consists of three men and two 
women. The men, members of the 
English Parliament, are opponents in 
politics. One of these men is an eld- 
erly man, about forty-five or fifty 
years old, and the father of a young 
daughter. The other, is a younger 
man who is in love with the daughter 
of the first. Of course, the former 
does not approve of the marriage of 
his opponent to his daughter. The 
situation is further complicated by 
the existence of an eccentric rich man 
who wishes to see to what extremes 
people will go for money which he 
cares little for. He offers to give 
50,000 pounds to both of these mem- 
bers of Parliament if they will take 
the name of Wurzel-Flummery. Be- 
cause of its length and queer sound, 
he doubts that the men will adopt 
the name. The decision of these two 
men must remain a mystery until 
October 30 at 7:30 P. M. when this 
play will be produced. 

The Wig and Buckle has announced 
that the annual play, November 22 
will be "Post Road" by W. D. Steele 
and Norma Mitchell. Robert Tschop, 
President of Wig and Buckle will 
probably be in charge of production, 
assLted by Dr. Struble.

Dr. Reynolds Reveals 
Freshmen Statistics 


Department of Education 
Compiles Results of Intel- 
ligence Tests 

Each year as one of the most impor- 
tant features of freshman week, the en- 
tire entering class is examined in the 
trait of intelligence. The freshman's rank 
in this factor of intelligence is a useful 
index of his scholastic ability. It Is 
therefore with eagerness that everyone 
has awaited the scores and medians of 
this year's psychological test. 

These Dr. O. Edgar Reynolds, head 
of the Department of Education, re- 
leased on Monday to La Vie. The test 
this year, he stated, was conducted in 
the college chapel on September 16, the 
second day of freshman week, in the 
morning. Complete tabulations were not 
possible, however, until this week be- 
cause of the failure of a number of 
freshmen to take the examination at the 
appointed time. 

With this group examined, the total 
number to undergo the test was 127. Of 
this total, 74 were men, and 53 were 
women. The women, while weaker in 
numbers, tended this year, as in former 
tests, to establish the higher median 
score, as well as the highest individual 
score. In this respect, the findings ot 
this year run true to those of the thir- 
teen tests administered in former years, 
since this is the thirteenth time the psy- 
chological test has been given to fresh- 
men at Lebanon Valley. 

Notwithstanding the fact that the 
number of samples was insufficient to

Miss Gillespie Feted 
at Birthday Surprise 

Melodrama Presented by 
North Hall Freshmen; 
Other Halls Assist 

All dormitory girls joined together last 
hursday night to celebrate with a sur- 
•rise party the birthday of their dean, 
iiss Mary E. Gillespie. A House Meefc- 
ng was scheduled for 9:00 p. m. at 
vhich time all the girls gathered in 
>Iorth Hall parlor. When Miss Gillespie 
entered the girls greeter her by singing 
"Happy Birthday." 

Hazel Heminway, who was in charge 
jf the party, greeted Miss Gillespie and 
then turned the program over to the 
North Hall freshmen. They acted out an 
old fashioned melodrama written by 
Margaret Bordwell, and entitled "Miss 
Gillespie Saves the Day." A typical me- 
lodrama, the plot was changed only by 
having the heroine saved because it was 
a holiday — Miss Gillespie's Birthday. 

Miss Gillespie was then given a floor 
lamp, the girls' present to her. The cur- 
tains were drawn back and on a table in 
the small dining hall was a large birthday 
cake. Miss Gillespie cut the cake and 
members of the W. S. G. A. served the 
ice cream. The table in the dining hall 
were arranged in a horse-shoe, and de- 
corated with flowers and candles. While 
they ate their refreshments, the girls all

Constitution and By-Laws of Clio.

The members of that peculiarly colle-

scene of happy domestic life and also 
domestic .agitation, were "at home" last 
Sunday to all those members of the con- 
trary sex who wished 1 to be able to boast 
to the gaping proletariat back home 
that they had been in the Men's Dorm 
for "two solid hours!" or longer. 

The girls were welcomed with open 
arms, figuratively of course, and every 
effort was put forth to making their vis- 
it an enjoyable one. Some of the deni- 
zens even went so far as to include dish- 
es of candy among the furnishings of 

the room, although it seemed that this 
added attraction was exploited to a 
greater extent by the home team than 
by the visitors. Apples also played an

First Grid Victory Recorded 
as Delaware Mud Hens Fall 


Three Field Goals, Two Extra Points, and Touchdown 
Registered by Rozman in Sensational Display of 

Lebanon Valley's Flying Dutchmen journeyed to Delaware last Saturday 
with one purpose in mind — to win their first victory of the season. And win 
they did by the surprising score of 23-7 in a game fraught with thrills. This 
gave the Blue and White a one game lead in the eight game series with the 
University of Delaware. 

Outstanding in this victory was one Tony Rozman, Lebanon Valley half- 
back, who, after several years of more or less adverse luck, blossomed out in a 
scoring orgy, tallying the not-so-insignificant total of 17 points. Eleven of 
those points were garnered via Tony's talented right toe. "Rozie" booted 
three field goals — one from the 32-yard line, two extra points, and completed 
an amazing display of versatility by scoring a touchdown in the last quarter. 

Almost as significant a factor in the Blue and White victory was the 
play of Valley's quarterback, Ed Kress. In the first period Kress picked up a 
kick-off on his own 5-yard line and raced through the entire Delaware team, 
abetted by some capable blocking on the part of his teammates. This feat 
apparently gave Kress the confidence he needed, for thereafter he handled 
the team in very commendable fashion. 

The game was thrilling throughout, but most of the action, thrills, and ac- 
companying suspense were packed in 
the first quarter. Kress returned Del- 
aware's opening kick-off to his own 
26. On the first play Kress punted to 
Roberts who fumbled on his own 37, 
Tryan recovering for Lebanon Valley. 
After Kress and Lennon each gained 
a yard Kress rifled a pass to Fridinger 
for a first down on the Delaware 21. 
Then, after three futile attempts to 
gain through the line, Rozman drop- 
ped back and standing as cool as a 
popsicle, split the goal posts with a 
perfect placement to put Lebanon 
Valley out in front 3-0.

Conservatory Students 
Instructors at Hershey 

Commencing Monday, October 17, 
1937, daily between the hours of twelve 
and two, eighteen Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege students of music will teach music 
at the Hershey public school. They have 
been observing the previous two weeks. 

The eighteen members are divided into 
nine teams. One member of each team 
will teach for two consecutive weeks af- 
ter which the other will teach for two 
weeks. They will alternate this waj 
throughout the year. Once or twice a 
semester they will teach in the Hershey 
junior and senior high schools. 

Besides teaching singing, they wdl 
teach violin, clarinet, cornet, saxophone, 
and others, once a week in an endeavor 
to organize a junior orchestra. 

The students who will compose this 
group are Robert Johns, Cecil Oyler, 
Frank Bryan, Gerald Hasbrouck, John 
Miller, James Ralston, Russel Heller, 
Cyrus Smith, Greta. Heiland, Kathryn 
Knoll, Lucille Maberry, Helen Butter- 
wick, Rita Mosher, Emily Kindt, Chris-

Progress on the 1939 "Quittapahilla" 
has been made by leaps and bounds this 
week. The photography, which is being 
done by the Zamsky Studios in Phila- 
delphia, was started on Monday, Octo- 
ber 18. The Juniors assisted at these 
sittings which were held in Philo Hall. 
During this week four individual pic- 
tures have been taken of each Senior, 
Junior, and underclass officer. Two of 
these photographs are formal and two 
informal. No caps and gowns were used, 
but instead the boys were asked to have 
their formals taken in a suit and shirt; 
the girls, in photographic drapes. The 
other two pictures may be taken in any 
pose or costume which the victim may 
desire. However, the photograph for the 
"Quittie" must be formal.

According to our narrow masculine experience, the female of the species 
is that part of the human race which is unable to learn through the medium 
of reading, for certain it is that, at about this time last year, we published in 
this journal and forsooth, in this very spot, an editorial calling down all 
manner of celestial calumny, not to mention rhetorical wrath upon the fair 
heads of those ladies who, so agreeable, so kind, and so charming in every 
other respect, are lead by some strange atavistic strain of savage cruelty 
lurking somewhere beneath those sweet exteriors to exercise every ingenious 
device known to the torturer's art in order to instil in us the uncontrollable 
and excruciating pangs of unsatiated hunger only intensified by the subtle 
odours of cookery which are wafted with fiendish, tantalizing wafts to our 
eager olfactories — snouts to you — by the winds of the changing seasons 
which come and go while we wait for the ladies, God bless 'em, to wend their 
devious, erratic, and infinitely prolonged way into the dining hall. 

At the sound of the dinner gong, the faculty members proceed to their 
places followed by a few straggling ladies of the senior class whose watches 
are fast, and who therefore think it is time for the next class, in which case 
they deem it advisable to abandon their feminine rights to pursue a policy of 
delay beside which that of Fabius were a marvel of expedition. Then, several 
ages pass, and a few girls, not so skilled in the womenly wiles trickle into 
the dining hall, after which, in the course of centuries all the ladies from 
Senior to freshman, all taking the most exquisite pains to avoid walking 
into the dining hall ahead of anyone else, especially an upperclassman, all 
consumate masters of the art of going nowhere rapidly, and all grimly 
bent on attaining the milennium before they get within sight of food, pass 
into the hall and align themselves beside the tables, while we who do not 
serve, but nevertheless stand and wait, stagger, crawl, or creep to our places 
crushed beneathed the weight of fantastically prolonged geologic ages, and 
bent double with the pangs of hunger. 

Some will say we have been overly long in saying this. To them we 
reply that, had it not been indicted while we waited for lunch, it well might 
have been shorter, with infinitely more satisfactory results to all — which is 
one way of saying that an improvement in the condition which is the burden 
of our complaint will quickly effectuate a proportionate amelioration in the 
length and indignation of our editorials. In other words, gals, pul-lease, 
we're hungry — won't you, won't you let us into the dining hall just now and 
then the same hour dinner is served?

A group of ministers' daughters who feel that they are grossly maligned 
in publications, on the stage and in international jokes have organized the 
Society of the Daughters of Preachers in New York. . . It is reported they 
are considering holding an annual Prom in conjunction with the SPCSCPG —

pass installing a steeplechase course and some odds and ends like a ski slide, 
boxing ring and a little reservation for skeet shooting. . . U. S. Patent No. 
2,094,614, just announced, is a process for treating cigarets to give off red- 
colored smoke to match blood-red lips, blood-red fingernails and blood-red

the only inhabitants of the house until 
Dr. Spender with a patient who is in :i 
critical condition, his nurse and the chau- 
ffeur appear. Then the excitement beg' it, 
and the remainder of the play is a com- 
bination of dramatic moments, scandals 
in the neighborhood, intervention of thn 
state police and a wild man-hunt.

wooing streamlined women to score

have one. If you want to get kicked

Columbu~, Chio — Cooperative purchase of supplies by fraternities and 
sororities at Ohio State University saved them 16 per cent on $90,000 worth 
cf provisions during the last year. 

This year S3 fraternities and eight sororities have joined forces uniting 
their purchasing power. There are now only five fraternities and 12 sorori- 
ties not included in the group, the majority of these being relatively small. 

Interest in improving the financial conditions of the various fraternities 
has led to the establishment of a uniform accounting system in the office of 
the auditor of fraternity accounts. 

Forty-six of the 58 fraternities now have "A" credit ratings, with the 
others rapidly reducing their financial obligations. When the auditing divi- 
sion was established on its present basis four years ago, fraternities owed 
creditors approximately $65,000. This has now been reduced to $15,000. 

New Haven, Conn.— Pledging Yale to "absolute intellectual freedom," Dr. 
Charles Seymour last week formally accepted the presidency of the university. 

"We may look across the seas and take warning," the 52-year-old his- 
torian said. "The Yale atmosphere must be so completely impregnated with 
the sense of freedom that our students going from here will serve naturally 
and universally as its apostles. 

"Every student at Yale should be impressed with the conviction that 
only through the spread of the liberal attitude in life can the nation find pro- 
tection from an obscurantist reaction on the one hand or a blind revolution 
on the other." 

Dr. Seymour warned that "unless the complete spirit of academic free- 
dom prevailed among students and scholars, freedom from external influence 
and internal presure, we commit the unforgivable sin against the first of 
academic principles." 

He asserted that the abcence of the spirit of liberty would be an offense 
against the principles of education. 

"It is not so difficult to achieve intellectual freedom in those fields of 
study that are somewhat remote from prejudices and passions of daily li fe - 
But in the fields that touch our social, political and economic relationships 
the principle is much easier to enunciate than to maintain. 

"Nevertheless our guarantee of complete liberty of speech must be abso- 
lute. In no other way can we discover the truth, correct the half-truth and 
destroy the lie. . . " 

A further duty of Yale, Dr. Seymour said is to maintain an atmosphere 
dominated by spiritual values. 

"Never in the history of the world has the menace of materialism been 
mere appalling nor the disastrous consequences of its triumph so obvious- 
In the political, economic and social fields of endeavor it has produced an 
will perpetuate suicidal strife. 

"Such a philosophy the university must utterly abhor and actively com- 
bat. . . To fight it we have need of clear intelligence. We have no less nee 
of unswerving loyalty to the golden rule. . . 

Notre Dame, Ind. — World trade during the next 20 years will be sharp 
influenced in its methods and its products by experiments now being conduc 
ed in university and industrial 'research laboratories throughout the wor 
in the opinion of Dr. Eugen Guth, University of Notre Dame physicist. 

"Several synthetic products are now in general use and others, sue _ 
resins, asphalt, glass and rubber, are rapidly taking their place along 5 
silk in the list of artificial commodities accepted by consumers as a matter 
coui'se." n 

Development of complete human diets in the laboratory, rather than ^ 
the farm, is not beyond the range of possibility in Dr. Guth's mind, 
foresees no need for "pill" diets in the near future. , j, e - 

Dr. Guth draws attention to the increasing number of Nobel awar _^ 
ing made in America annually. The center of research activity i s s 
more and more from Europe to the United States, he believes. yri- 

This he accounts for by the facilities offered here as an incentive 
vate initiative by university and industral laboratories whereas i n 
the state is usually the sole sponsor of such work.

reversal of form shown by our 

Dutchmen last Saturday in 

j a1 y ar e was truly remarkable. We 

knew right along that it was in 

^ but we wondei'ed just when it 

]A make its first public appear- 

„ Furthermore it mu.t also be re- 

^bered that such fine gridiron 
jiie 111 

-jfiors as Frank Rozman and Chris 
flalk were °^ virtually no value be- 
e of injuries. Chris did play a 

minutes but he was not the Chris

though the opposition a mile a min

newly f° un d ( as ^ ar as this year goes) 
c0l ,j n g threats we will have a back- 
ed that will give any rival coach a 
Kfljfic headache. 


Tony Rozman's feat of booting 
three fields goals in one game is 
extremely rare these days. They 
we re much more common back 
in the old days when the goal 
posts were on the goal line, but 
when the rule-makers moved the 
cross-bar back ten yards, they au- 
tomatically gave the field goal a 
back seat on most gridirons. Tony 
proved that the field goal can 
still be a mighty weapon if it is 
used properly by an educated toe. 
The two extra points further 
prove that his toe is highly edu- 
cated. He reminds us Bill 
Smith the former star from Tren- 
ton who missed only one extra 
point his senior year. As long 
as Tony is in the line-up we can 
feel safe that we will not lose any 
7-6 or 13-12 games this year. 


Among the teams remaining on our 
schedule are two that have not been 
beaten as yet. One of them, our tra- 
ditional rivals, Albright ran a-cropper 
last week when the Ursinus Bears held 
them to a scoreless tie. Dick Riffle 
and his boys completely outplayed the 
Collegeville aggregation but were un- 
able to reach the pay-off territory. 
The Juniata Indians have not tasted 
defeat as yet either but their compe- 
tition was not of a very high caliber. 
They have scored one-touchdown vic- 
tories over Washington College of 
tester-town, Maryland; Hartwick 
College of Oneonta, New York; and 
^ove City. Before they invade Ann- 
'Me, however, they will have met 
s °me stiffer opponents.

Dutchmen Out to Avenge 
Last Year's 15-0 Home- 
coming Setback 

Our Flying Dutchmen will soar into 
the Philadelphia nest of the St. Joseph's 
I lawks Saturday afternoon to do battle 
with them. Last week our high flyers 
swooped down upon Delaware and came 
away witli a 2:3-7 victory while the 
Hawks were getting their wings clipped 
by the St. Thomas Tommies of Scranton. 
Those Tommies are the very same Tom- 
mies that so soundly thrashed our Blue 
and White gridders last fall in the coal 
region city, so this blot on the Phila- 
elphians' record can be taken with a 
grain of salt when considering this 
week's battle. 

So far this season the Hawks have 
played four games, winning two, tieing 
one, and dropping that one to St. Thom- 
as last Sunday. The first team to be 
preyed upon by the Hawks was the 
Panzer College team of East Orange, 
New Jersey. The score was 40-0. The 
following week Mt. St. Mary's was de- 
feated 10-7. Their next battle resulted 
in a scoreless tie with P. M. C. Accord- 
ing to this record, the St. Joseph's team 
can easily prove to be a tough foe for 
us to down this week. 

Coach Frock's boys finally hit their 
stride against Delaware last Saturday, 
but they can suffer no let-down if they 
expect to come home with the bacon. 
The team came out of the Delaware 
game in good sliape. Stanley Bulota re- 
turned to the line-up and Coda Spon- 
augle made his 1937 debut which had 
been delayed by a broken hand. Chr;s 
Walk and Frank Rozman were ailing 
last week, but by Saturday they may lv». 
in shape to resume playing. 

The Lebanon Valley-St. Joseph's ri- 
valry began in 1!»1(> when the Blue and 
White swamped the Hawks by a 71-0 
score. In 1922 L. V. C. won 46-0. The 
third meeting of the two teams was 
staged in 1931. That year and the fol- 
lowing years Lebanon Valley's string of 
victories remained intact, but last year 
the magic charm was broken as the 
liawks romped to a 15-0 victory here 
on our home gridiron. 


The casting for the Wig and Buckle 
play, "Wurzel-Flummery," by A. A. Mil- 
ne, lias been done and the play is well 
on its w,ay to production. The cast con- 
sists of Dean Aungst as Robert Craw- 
shaw, an excessively dignified and pom- 
pous individual; Barbara Bowman in the 
role of Margaret, his devoted and self-- 
effacing wife; Dorothy Long as Viola, 
the sweet young tiling very much in love 
with Richard Meriton, who is portrayed 
by Benny Goodman. William Clark takes 
the part of Clifton, a very eccentric 
and effected fellow, and the maid is 
played by Ellen Ruppersberger. The 
plot concerns the problem ensning from 
the conditions in the will of a rich mis- 
anthrope, who leaves fifty thousand 
pounds to both Richard Meriton and 
Robert Crawshaw, on the condition that 
they adopt the name of Wurzel-Fluiii- 
mery. Robert Crawshaw disapproves of 
his daughter's marriage to Richard be- 
cause the young man is so poor and be- 
cause lie is his rival in Parliament. Wc 
see just how perverse mankind is, and 
how really well the old man had read 

"Wurzel-Flummery" will be presented 
on October 30, 1 1 ome- coining, for the 
benefit of alumni, visitors, faculty, and 
students. It will take place in Engle 
Hall at 7:30 following the alumni ban- 
quet. The play is directed by Limps'' 
Stoner, under the supervision of Dr. G. 
G. Struble. 

Inspiring Leader 


For four years we have been see- 
ing one of our linemen playing in the 
opposition's backfield quite regular- 
ly. He is none other than Gordon 
Davies, our captain and veteran 
guard who, furthermore has proven 
himself to be an inspirational leader. 

First Grid Victory Recorded 
As Delaware Mud Hens Fall 

(Continued 'from page 1) 

ered a Blue and White fumble on the 
Lebanon Valley 38 and in four plays 
George, the Mud Hens' fullback dove 
across the pay-off stripe and subse- 
quently added the conversion to shift 
the lead to Delaware's favor 7-3. 

It was at this point that Kress elec- 
trified the crowd by running back 
Delaware's kick-off 95 yards for a 
tally. When Rozman booted the sec- 
ond of his flawless placements, the 
score see-sawed to 10-7 with L. V. C. 
in the van. 

After the first quarter the story is 
all Lebanon Valley's as far as scor- 
ing goes. Rozman added his second 
field goal in the second quarter, bi- 
secting the "H" from Delaware's 32 
to boost the score to 13-7. He com- 
pleted his remarkable record in the 
third quarter when he stepped back 
to the 21 and kicked his third field 
goal of the day. The score then read 

The last score was registered in 
the fourth quarter on a Valley sus- 
tained drive from their own 44. On 
the first play Kress was stopped with- 
out gain. He then tossed to Frey on 
the 30 but the play was called back 
and the Dutchmen were penalized 5 
yards for off-side play. Kress again 
tossed to Frey who raced to Dela- 
ware's 21. Rozman, on a double re- 
verse, lateraled to Kress for 8 yards. 
Rozman made it first down on the 
10. After gains by Kuhn and Kress, 
Rozman steam-rolled through the cen- 
ter for the tally and then proceeded 
to add the extra point. This 23-7 count 
remained unchanged for the remaind- 
er of the game. 

Coach Frock and his minions rate 
considerable acclaim for the improve- 
ment shown by the Blue and White 
eleven in their tilt with Delaware. 
Every man played alert ball and the 
plays were run off with precision. The 
team that took the field against the 
Mud Hens was an entirely different 
outfit from the one that lost to Muhl- 
enberg 14-0. 

Prayer Meeting 

Beatrice '/.amojski was in charge 
of the prayer service of Wednesday, 
October 13, held in Philo Hall at 
6:45. Lucy Cook assisted by leading 
the devotions, while Dorothy YeakeJ 
gave the evening talk. She very ap- 
propriately spoke on Columbus and 
his undaunted spirit, emphasizing the 
fact that one ought to set one's course 
and to hold it unafraid. The fellow- 
ship was closed by a circle of prayer 


Helen Bartlett Scores L. V. 
C. Points; Practice Game 
with Shippensburg 

The Lebanon Valley College Girls' 
Hockey Team made its season's debut 
last Saturday afternoon on the home 
lield with the Harrisburg Hockey Club 
team as guests. The Blue and White 
girls proved good hostesses by dropping 
a 3-2 decision to the Harrisburgers. 

The visitors jumped off to an early 
lead of one goal, but it was not long 
before Helen Bartlett knotted the count 
by slamming the ball into the cords for 
a goal. Before the half-time whistle 
blew, however, the Harrisburgers had 
scored again to lead 2-1. Helen Bartlett 
put the homesters back in the game by 
registering another marker in the second 
half. The girls from Harrisburg were 
not to be denied, however, and netted 
the bill a third time to win 3-2. 

Yesterday the hockey players journey- 
ed to Shippensburg State Teachers' Col- 
lege to engage the girls of that school 
in a practice game. The main purpose 
of this trip was to acclimate the girls 
to a fine, level field in preparation for 
an invasion of the Philadelphia Cricket 
Club next weekend. Since strenuous op- 
position is anticipated on this Philadel- 
phia trip, the practice match at Ship- 
pensburg should have provided valuable

The Collegiate Review 

(By Associated Collegiate Press) 

Contrary to popular belief, it is the coed and not the chorus girl who is 
holding most of the model jobs these days. Advertisers demand an intel- 
ligent animated face, which reflects a definite personality, as well as beauty 
and a stream-lined figure. 

Football has been discarded for rodeo sports at the Cheyenne School at 
Colorado Springs. Bucking horses and wild steers are considered less dan- 
gerous by the school officials. 

Indiana University has established an upper-classmen's walk from which 
freshmen "podwearers" are barred. 

A new 27-inch telescope has been installed at the University of Kansas 
and is ready for use. 

The Daily Iowan's columnist observes that often the best students are 
those who know their professor's idiosyncrasies. 

Tooters in the University of Pennsylvania's band have barred coeds. 
They claim girls would spoil everything — disrupt discipline, to say nothing 
of the embarrassment it would cause when the outfit had to change into its 
uniforms in the aisle of a railroad coach. 

A survey taken among 220 coeds at Oregon State College showed that 
students with an average above "C" spent less time studying and more time 
relaxing than the majority of those receiving lower grades. It also indicated 
that coeds spend almost as much time at their dressing tables as they do

The Kampus Keyhole 

By Archie, the Anarchist 

W hispers reach our secluded cell there 
is a new game called "More Bags on the 
Mill" which is sweeping Tne campus by 
storm — or at any rate with a remarkable 
promptitude (French for catching on). 
According to our information, all you 
need to play it is is a sofa, a couple of 
Sabine women, and a life insurance pol- 
icy which hasn't lapsed. We don't know 
just exactly how they play it, but it 
must be strenuous, if the disheveled ap- 
pearances of its most enthusiastic devo- 
tees, Zwally, Strayer, Dot Long, Dave 
Byerly, liulota, and Dempsey count for 
anything. They &ay it can be played 
partners or otherwise. We are not so 
indiscreet as to ask "What eez. dees here 


By virtue of our journalistic preroga- 
tive of sneaking through people's key- 
holes we learn a great number of very 
interesting little facts, such as, for in- 
stance, the tact that Sanuny Yaughan 
and "Dutchie" Hackman aren't the in- 
hospitable sort they are cracked up to 
be at all. The reason they had their 
door locked at open house is simply that 
it is far, far beneath a gentleman to 
know how to make a bed. Sammy aud 
Dutch, it seems, practically discovered 
royal blood in their veins, when they 
went to the mat with the whirling dever- 
ish, commonly known as the Mystery 
uf the Twisted Sheet. 


Life's beetle Dtfixnmny: Act I. Dean 
Aungst, of the Barrymore Aungsts, re- 
turns to school to find himself a campus 
widower. "Alas," he cries, "she was the 
fairest of the fair — 1 shall never love 
another !" He sits down to write. "Dear- 
est," he writes, "e'en though you are go- 
ing to another school, I continue to love 
only you for whom the pent-up fires of 
my passion rage unabated by the sati- 
ating conditions of my environments. 

Act II. D.A., of the B.A., receives a 
letter from his only. "Dearest," she says, 
"what you say flatters me extremely. 
However, since I hear from other sources 
that all that is odiferous dwells not in 
Daneland, I am constrained to tlrop you 
like a hot potato. Go, you — " and here 
a tear blotted the page. 

Act III. The /Tungst, rising to the oc- 
casion, pulls himself together, broken as 
he is by the vicissitudes of a cruel exist- 
ence. "I have made a mistake," says he. 
turning to Eva; "it is you 1 love — I can 
never love another!"

swoop an unsuspecting feline destined 
to become the "Anatomy of the Cat," 
but we saw it, and can hold it as a

Suppose, when the preacher says, "Let

musical presentation was a part of the 
program of the State Sabbath School

The first group of numbers consisted 
of three marches, "Adoration," "Pride 
O' the Land," and "Bravura." This was 
followed by two novelty numbers, "Mem- 
ories of Stephen Foster," arranged by 
Lucien Cailliet, and "Three Blind Mice,' 
arranged by Edward Chenette. The next 
number rendered was "Come Sweet 
Death," a Bach choral. The concert was 
brought to a fitting close by the hand's

tomological peculiarities. Robert Nichols 
then reported on the subject of Cannibal- 
istic Plants, in which he discussed the 
pitcher plant, the sundew, and the Venus 
fly-trap. Following this a report on the 
early developments of embryology, taken 
from Logan Clendening's book, The Ro- 
mance of Medicine, was submitted by 
Clarence Lehman 

At this meeting it was also learned that 
Professor Derickson has been honored 
by one of his former students, Dr. Robert 
L. Roudabush, who discovered a parasitic 
plant and gave it the name Eimcria dcr- 
icksoni as a dedication to one who had 
helped him greatly in the field of science. 
Dr. Roudabush has done considerable 
work in the held of parasitology, and has 
a number of publications to his credit. 

The meetings of the Biology society are 
open to all persons interested in, or doing 
work in the Department. A number of

the most personality reflected in it. The 
election took place in the reception room 
with Prof, and Mrs. Carmean as judges 
of election, and resulted in a two-way 
tie for first place. The room occupied 
by Cordon Davies and Walter Fridinger 
and that inhabited by Robert Tschopp, 
Raymond Smith, and Benjamin Good- 
man spread-eagled the field and came in 
under the wire in a dead heat. The room 
of Dennis Geesey and Robert Dinsmore 
received considerable mention for its 
extensive mural decoration. More than 
sixty votes were cast with many rooms 
receiving several votes or more, indeed, 
to such an extent as to evoke comment 
of favoritism on the part of individual 
members of the feminine electorate. 


Hearken all ye beggars, impoverished 
paupers, poor and needy, and all ye 
people who are wretched and miserable 
from your extreme poverty and suffer 
from a lack of earthly store. If thou 
be one of these aforementioned wretches, 
pray give heed to this which is about to 
be unfolded before your very eyes. 

It has been given expressly out that in 
nights twain, that is to say, on the twen- 
ty-third day of this tenth month of Oc- 
tober, A.D., one thousand nine hundred 
and thirty seven, will be held even a 
dance. The event, even that which has 
been already spoken of, will take place 
under the guidance of those two local 
organizations popularly referred to and 
recognized as the Young Women's Chris- 
tian Association and the Young Men's 
Christian Association. 

It has further been declared that only 
rags and tatters seeming to be in need 
of Extreme Unction shall be employed 
as habiliment, under a dire penalty of 
three shillings, five pence, which, if any- 
one have so enormous a fortune, he does 
have nary a right to appear anyway. 
Similarly debarred are such members of 
the nobility possessing a change of un- 
dergarments or extra pair of hose, for 
such luxuriosuness cometh of the devil, 
from which the saints preserve us. In 
short, anyone whose cloak looketh not 
like a map of Merrie England by town- 
ships, or of which a single bit of the 
pristine garment be remaining, the same 
shall not be admitted. For such are the 
clothes of the wanton and corrupt peer- 

A seemly program is even now being 
prepared for all the people of this sov- 
ereign state, young and old, grey-haired 
and non-haired, which will marry well 
be worth your efforts to attend. So end- 
eth the proclamation. God Save the 

Neutrality Discussion 
Features /. R. C. Meeting 

The International Relations Club at 
its bi-weekly meeting last night discuss- 
ed the Neutrality Act and its present 
implications. Elizabeth Bender led the 
discussion on this subject. This bill, 
passed in May, 1937, is a product of the 
strict isolationist doctrine. It was stated 
that in the Italo-Ethiopian crisis a state 
of war was recognized five days before 
severing the relations of Italy and Ethi- 
opia. In Japan and China today, diplo- 
matic relations have not been severed. 
President Roosevelt, in his Chicago 
speech, went against the spirit of the 
Neutrality Act by abandoning the isola- 
tionist theory. Considerable discussion 
was caused by this timely topic. Pauline 
Leininger spoke on current events. 

During the business meeting it was 
decided to run a weekly column in La 
Vie on international events. Plans for 
attending the annual I. H. C. conference 
at St. Lawrence University were dis- 
cussed. It was announced that a cabinet 
meeting will be held Monday.

Discusses Educational Associ- 
ation Conference ; Condi- 
tion and Aims of Japan 

The student body was addressed in the 
duipel assembly last Friday by Dr. Em- 
ma G. Herd, of Harrisburg, who came 
to our campus to present first hand im- 
pressions of the Far East. 

What lent an air of Old China to Dr. 
Herd was the unique garb she wore. 
It consisted of two pieces, an outer coat, 
and beneath that, a single piece garment 
extending from chin to ankles. The for- 
mer was an old Mandarin coat, an heir- 
loom which is held precious by its mod- 
ern Chinese holder, and is only parted 
with because of necessity. The silk dress 
or kiniona is the conventional habit of 
present day Chinese women. 

Both were acquired by Dr. Herd dur- 
ing her recent tour of the Far East 
and of Japan especially, where she at- 
tended the sessions of the World's Fed- 
eration of Educational Associations. Ex- 
plaining the two slits in her skirt ex- 
tending from the hem for about a foot 
upwards, Dr. Herd called them a com- 
promise between the Western short 
skirt and the desire of the silk produc- 
ers to put an undiminished amount of 
material into the dress. 

Such evidences of compromise with in- 
vading Western customs are to be mul- 
tiplied, Dr. Herd asserted. Often, how- 
ler, the external form of a Western 
'"novation is copied, and its purpose or 
"leaning is lost sight of. This pheno- 
menon led the speaker to conclude that 
°"r civilization, although gaining more 
a "d more influence in the East, is none- 
theless artificial, and a veneer superim- 
!" >Se d upon the spontaneous cultures of 
" le ancient Eastern peoples. 

As an example, Dr. Herd described 
1 typical Chinese meat market. The 
" le at is hang in open stalls upon the 
street for weeks at a time, and is liter- 
% covered with flies. A piece of cello- 
i lane, representing a Western introduc-

L. V. Celebrates it's Fifth 
Annual Homecoming 



Hamlet, Merchant of Venice 
To Be Presented In Matinee 
and Evening Shows 

James Hendrickson and Claire 
Bruce and their Shakespearean re- 
pertory company will appear in two 
performances on the L. V. C. stage 
on November 4. They will present 
"Merchant of Venice" at 4:00 p. m. 
and "Hamlet" at 8:00 p. m. This ap- 
pearance is being made as a part of 
the company's tenth annual tour. 

The company of ten actors has been 
chosen with the utmost care, for their 
suitability, training, and experience 
in Shakespearean interpretation, all 
members of the company having first 
served their apprenticeship in the 
theatre before being eligible to the 
company. The personnel remains the 
same, for the most part, from year 
to year, this undoubtedly being a 
large contributing factor the com- 
pany's reputation for smooth-running 
individual and group performances. 

Mr. Hendrickson and Miss Bruce 
themselves have had a sound appren- 
ticeship, and notwithstanding that 
they are well-grounded in the tradi- 
tional methods of Shakespearean in- 
terpretation, their aim is rather to 
imbue the productions with vitality 
and freshness, not hesitating to dis- 
card out-worn and musty traditions.

Valleyites Outscored

Rural Sport Hits West Hall 

Last Thursday night West Hall took 
advantage of the abundance of moon- 
light, or perhaps the lack of it, and went 
on that distinctly unique sort of expe- 
dition known to the natives hereabouts 
as a hay ride. 

Although the Initial pari of the expe- 
dition took the form of » hike, the hope- 
ful participants stuck it out with admir- 
able fortitude. Their patience was final- 
ly rewarded by coining within sight of 
a horse, and then another horse, and 
then a hay wagon, actually sprinkled 

with a few wisps of hay here and there 
throughout, and last of all a farmer, 
who then took charge of the situation. 

The driver then proceeded to conduct 
the party over a few of the roads north- 
west of Annville. Nothing additional 
was needed to make the a flair a com- 
plete success except perhaps an appli- 
cation of the principles of knee action 
to the springs of the wagon, that is, if 
it only had had springs. Although the 
moon insisted on going on a stay-in

Blue and White to meet P. M. C. on Gridiron, Wig and Buckle 
Presents Wurzel-Flummery at Seven o'clock; Frosh and 
Sophs to Hold Annual Tug 

Lebanon Valley's Fifth Annual Homecoming day will be celebrated this 
weekend, Saturday, October 30. Interest has been aroused in the alumni and 
their attention called to the event by means of cards mailed by the alumni 
secretary, Dr. H. H. Shenk. Other members of the administration have been 
and are cooperating to make this day an outstanding one in the college year, 
one outstanding in its features at ide from the fact that it is homecoming 

A novel feature of this year's celebration will be the distinguishing of 
sons and daughters of alumni by means of a badge or pin. Then too, sev- 
eral members of the "junior alumni" will perform in special numbers at 
various times during the day and will occupy special places at the pep meet- 
ing Saturday morning. There are ap- 
proximately forty sons and daughters 
of alumni enrolled in L. V. C. at the 
present, with twelve of these being- 

The main feature of the days' pro- 
gram will be, as in former years, the 
annual homecoming football game, 
the opposition coming this year from 
Pennsylvania Military College of 
Chester. The game will be of un- 
usual interest, since both teams are 
out to gain the advantage in a close 
series. P. M. C. was defeated last 
year, although she was not played in 
the homecoming game, by the ultra- 
close score of 7-6, won by Lebanon 
Valley in the closing thirty second on 
Raymie Frey's catch of Eddie Kress' 
pass and Harper Main's extra-point 
boot. On the other hand, the Blue 
and White was trimmed by St. Jos- 
eph to the tune of a 15-0 count, when 
what had been a tight battle for 
three quarters turned into a rout in 
the last. So, with L. V. C. anxious 
to show up well in the homecoming 
game and P. M. C. eager to avenge 
last season's setback, a battle royal 
should ensue. 

In preparation for this game a live- 
wire pep meeting will be held in the 
chapel at 11 o'clock. Dave Evans, 
class of 1916, is expected to be pres-

Hawks Score in Second Period 
on 64-yard March to Goa* 
to Win 

Coach Jerry Frock's Lebanon Val- 
ley gridders lost a hard-fought but 
uninteresting battle to the St. Jos- 
eph's College Hawks in a game played 
on the latter's rain-soaked field last 
Saturday, by a score of 7-0. 

The Hawks started to move from 
their 36 late in the first period and 
carried the oval 64 yards on a sus- 
tained drive that was climaxed by a 
touchdown early in the second period. 
Cole, Marhefka, and Furey featured 
the attack. 

Everything started when Kress 
booted to St. Joe's 36 where Herman. 
L. V. C. tackle, downed the ball. Hei- 
menz gained six yards around end 
on a reverse from Furey. Furey hit 
center for a first down on the St. Joe 
47. Cole picked up nine yards through 
center on two tries as the quarter 

Furey opened the second quarter by 
gaining a first down on the L. V. C. 
37. Cole picked up a meager two 
yards on a reverse. MarhefSa sneaked 
through for seven yards on a de- 
layed buck, and Cole made it first 
down on the Valley 27. Cole smacked 
through the line for 9 yards. At this 
point Cole tossed a pass to Guziewicz 
on the 10. As Guziewicz was about to 
be downed, he lateraled to Heimenz, 
who scored standing up. Cole booted 
the extra point from placement to 
make the score 7-0. The score re- 
mained unchanged from that point on. 

Lebanon Valley had several scor- 
ing opportunities but failed to con- 
vert them into tallies. The Dutchmen 
most seriously threatened St. Joe's 
goal line in the final period when 
Kress returned Cole's kick to the St. 
Joe 42. Kress, on the next play, 
passed to Frey on the St. Joe 28, but 
the Blue and White end, after he had 
been tackled, attempted to lateral to 
a teammate. The ball was recovered

The Life Work Recruits began their 
deputation work for this school year 
last Sunday evening. They had com- 
plete charge of the special service 
held by the Women's Missionary So- 
ciety of the Shiremanstown United 
Brethren church. The minister of 
church, Rev. R. A. Strasbaugh, re- 
quested an all women's deputation for 
this special service. 

A very interesting program was 
presented by the Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege Conservatory of Music. The au- 
dience was inspired by the vocal num- 
bers of Lucy Cook. Catherine Col- 
man pleased the congregation by her 
flute numbers. Both of the soloists 
were accompanied by Dorothy Yeakel.

evening, spoke on the missionary sub- 
ject of "The Challenge of Non-saved

Editors Note: — La vie welcomes letters

ly that they be signed in evidence of 
good faith. The signature will not be 
printed if the write* so desires. 

Dear Sir, 

Being an alleged sportscaster of 
some small reputation in this locality 
•and being required to report success 
or failure of all schools — It behooves 
me to inform you — That is if you 
don't mind — that a man who claims 
an Alma Mater with justifiable pride 
is in a very embarrassing position 
when his reports call too often upon 
him to report failure on behalf of the 
Home town eleven. 

I can't believe the boys realize that 
3ach Saturday night all over this 
state and others, fellows just like me 
must say you either WON OR YOU 
LOST. If we report victory we feel 
pretty good and if we report defeat 
we certainly feel badly. After all a 
possible half million people hear it. 
The only reason I don't cry about this 
football situation is because this type- 
writer doesn't have a tear key. 

There are plenty of people that the 
local eleven doesn't even know (nor 
did they ever hear of us) who watch 
with interest every Saturday to see 
what the boys from Annville did with 
their game. Let's hope this letter will 
make them victory conscious or somp- 

If you want radio publicity in this 
end of the state send it to me and it 
is as good as on the air.

The fate of the Spearfish Normal football team, from Spearfish, S. D., 
hung on a pair of football pants, two weeks ago. 

The team had come to Aberdeen to play the Northern State Teachers 
College. The Spearfish team had an "All-American" tackle, according to its 
coach, but he couldn't play because they couldn't find a pair of pants to 
fit his 260 pounds of brawn and muscle. 

"I've wired every sporting goods company and if a pair arrives in time 
for the game so I can use him, we'll have a good chance to win," said the 

Students at Columbia University who take the psychology tests find it 
pays to talk back. 

If they're asked to "moo like a cow" they're given a high rating if they 
nonchalantly moo, toss back some flippant comment. Getting embarrassed 
gives them a poor mark. 

And an occasional "what-the-hell" during the examination rated better 

than "Yes, sir." 

The idea is to measure self-confidence, aggressiveness and dominance. 

The University of Iowa possesses one professor, in the college of educa- 
tion, who understands the undergraduate mind. He occasionally warns the 
students, "I think I'll sleep through class time." And he does. 

Texas Christian University students have worn out three editions of 
Emily Post's book on etiquette and the fourth is in shreds, according to 
the librarian. The most frequent borrowers are boys. By noticing who bor- 
rows "Emily Post" she can often predict weddings and announcement parties. 

A break for the men at Ohio Wesleyan — coeds there are all in favor of 
limiting the number of corsages they expect to receive during the year. But, 
they want fewer flowers "so that the money can be spent attending more 

Boston has been displaced as the home of the most Hax-vard alumni. 
New York has more than 7,000, the new alumni directory revealed. 

Teaching at Cleveland College of Western Reserve University is a family 
affair to 12 members of the faculty. There are now six "husband and wife" 
teams teaching at the college. 

Princeton freshmen placed Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes ahead 
of President Roosevelt as the greatest living American, a tabulation of the 
annual poll of the entering class disclosed. 

Bandsmen at the University of Minnesota are really just little boys. 
Initiation rules for first year men contain this: "Always carry: one bag 
gooey gum drops; one tin legitimate cigarettes; one package good gum; and 
after dinner mints are darn good." 

Baltimore, Md. — (ACP). — "De-emphasized" football is a reality at the 
Johns Hopkins University. The football financing problem has been solved 
to the joy of fans by allowing everybody to go to the games on passes. 

Ticket takers, hereafter, will only glance at "guest cards." The cards are 
available to all askers and cost nothing. 

Each card will be good for "bearer" and all comers — the card owner can 
play host to his relatives and friends at will. 

Under the new plan — never before attempted by a modern-day univer- 
sity — Johns Hopkins will never pay nor accept guarantees, will finance its 
own trips away and expect visiting teams to do the same.

The recital on Monday evening will 
be the third annual recital since the 
installation of the new-four-manual 
Moller organ. In the past years these 
recitals have been well attended, and 
a large number of students, alumni, 
and friends of the college are expect- 
ed to be present th is year. 

Student Prayer Meeting 

On Wednesday, October 20, 1937, 
the student prayer meeting held h 
Kalo Hall was presided over by Cur- 
vin Thompson, who also conducted 
the devotional part of the service. A 
special piano selection was played by 
Edith Metzger. Charles Miller, the 
speaker, made modern, practical ap- 
plications to the Biblical story of 
Nehemiah building the wall of Jeru- 
salem. After the speaker had fin- 
ished his short address Thomas Gui- 
nivan offered the closing prayer.

sity in Indianapolis, Indiana. He is a 
friend of Dr. Stonecipher; they were 
both professors in the same college in 
the 1920's. Professor Marshall gave nu- 
merous entertaining selections; his im- 
personations .and dialectic selections were 
of an exceptionally excellent quality. 
His variation of the well-known speech 
on the "Frog" was especially clever. He 
presented a few of Edgar A. Guest's 
poems and several of James Whitcomb 
Riley's. From Indiana himself, Prof. 
Marshall naturally excels in the Hoosier 
dialect. Among his many jokes and hu 
morous anecdotes were mingled some 
selections emphasizing pathos, which 
added to the variety of the program; 
and made us realize how versatile the 
reader was. 

Besides the speech in chapel, Prof. 
Marshall also talked to Dr. Struble's 
11:15 English section, giving a semi 
professional talk on dramatics. He 
stressed the point that nearly everyone 
could be at least a good speaker, even 
though they did not aspire to be an act 
or; and that encouragement is more nec 
essary than criticism to the average 

The next point stressed was avoiding 
self-consciousness in any form of public 
speaking. This can best be done by deep 
breathing and a change of position, whicli 
also facilitates thinking. Too much walk- 
ing, however, makes one extremely ner- 
vous. He recommended too few rather 
than to many gestures, as gestures often 
detract. Prof. Marshall commented upon 
the use of the pause effectively, giving 
examples of great actors who used it 
extensively. He then gave two readings, 
"A Literary Nightmare" by Mark Twain, 
and a story about a man with a poor 
memory giving a speech. 

Upon interviewing Prof. Marshall, v/e 
learned that he has lived in Indiana for 
about sixteen years, and is especially in- 
terested in Riley, whose home in Green- 
field, Indiana, has recently been rehabil- 
itated and attracts a large number of 
sight-seers. Marshall said that he appre- 
ciated very greatly the Lebanon Valley 
College audience's reaction to his first 
visit here. He has made about one hun- 
dred and fifty public appearances, and 
has written over four hundred radio 
plays, most of which he has produced 
and presented over radio station WIRE 
in Indianapolis. He said that many peo- 
ple remark upon the clear eyes and 
warm handshake of the Indianians; but 
he thought the reason for the clear eyes 
was dodging traffic, and the warm hand- 
shake came from handshaking other pol- 

Hoboes, peasants, and paupers cele- 
brated last Saturday night in the 
Alumni Gymnasium at the Poverty 
Dance sponsored by the Y.M.C.A. and 
Y. W. C. A. In view of the fact that 
only the poverty-stricken could at- 
tend, the admission price was one 
safety pin. 

The gymnasium, decorated by the 
Freshman "Y" Cabinet, was hung 
with old clothes, and store boxes 
placed along the walls served as 
seats. Margaret Bordwell headed the 
decoration committee. At intermis- 
sion the breadline was served cider 
and pumpkin pies. Novelty dances, 
planned by Dorothy Yeakel and in- 
troduced by Gustav Maury, added to 
the enjoyment of the party. The 
broom dance, new form of tagging, 
proved to be especially popular with 
the stag boys. 

Miss Gillespie and Dr. Lietzau 
chaperoned the party. Between dances 
Prof. Carmean photographed various 
groups with his well known candid 

From the assortment of ragged 
costumes assembled it was evident 
that everyone had tried his ingenuity 
to the utmost to produce some inter- 
esting apparel. Party goers wearing 
everything from overalls, beer-jack- 
ets, and battered straw hats to tat- 
tered skirts, smocks and dilapidate 

hose were to be seen dancing 

to the 

of Roy Lloyd's orchestra °' 


seated informally on the floor, 
general hilarity and lack of fo«* a ^ 
made the Poverty Party a most 
joyable and successful dance.

glue and White Meets 
P.M.C. in Fifth Game 


^experienced Cadets to Pro- 
vide Homecoming Opposi- 
tion for Dutchmen 

The main feature of the imoendine: 
g om ecoming Day program is the 
^.jdiron battle between our Flying 
Dutchmen and the Cadets of Penn- 
s ylvania Military College. The Ca- 
dets have received rough treatment 
j n most of the games they have 
played so far this season, but lately 
jjjey have been handling some of it 
c ut also, so they will be all set to make 
Lebanon Valley their first victims of 
the campaign. 

The P- M. C. team is very young 
an d rather inexperienced but they 
have shown an indomidable spirit 
which makes them ever dangerous. 
Coach Jud Timm has had his hands 
full to get his team molded into an 
effective unit, but progress has been 
rapid and his boys are about due to 
blossom forth into a fine display of 
football one of these Saturdays. 

The only veteran back on the squad 
is this week's captain, Andy Elko. 
Coach Timm, however, has succeeded 
in finding some fine running mates 
for him in the persons of Sylvester, 
Boandl, Perugino, Piff, and Spang. 
All five of these aforementioned men 
are underclassmen. 

The Cadets opened their season on 
September 17 against West Chester 
State Teachers and succumbed by a 
19-0 score. The following two weeks 
they stepped out of their class and 
were thrown for losses by New York 
University and Villanova. The score 
of the game with the Violet was 37-6, 
and the count in the game with the 
Wildcats was 42-0. Getting back in 
their own class on October 9, they 
met and tied St. Joseph's 0-0. A vast 
improvement was shown in that game 
over the previous ones. Last Satur- 
day they lost to F. & M. 12-0. 

The Lebanon Valley-P. M. C. series 
dates back to 1933 when both schools 
put strong machines on the field. Nei- 
ther could make any headway so a 
scoreless tie resulted. In 1934 the 
Cadets went into the Thanksgiving 
game against the Blue and White un- 
scored upon. The Flying Dutchmen 
w «e conceded little chance of mar- 
ring this record. Midway in the 
fourth quarter the Cadets were lead- 
' n g 12-0 and were threatening to add 
Mother touchdown. Fate seemed to 
fr own on P. M. C. however, because 
R oss Sheesley, L. V. C. back inter- 
red a pass on his own goal line, 
an d, behind some excellent blocking, 
! ' ari the length of the field for a touch- 
d °wn, thereby spoiling the Cadets 
Perfect record. It was a moral vic- 
tor y for the Blue and White. 

h 1935 P. M. C. came to Annville 
° n Homecoming Day and lost 6-0 
Wft en Boyd Sponaugle caught a pass 
° Ve r the goal line on a play that 
* as intended to be something far dif- 

^' eri t. Last year's battle was prob- 
a % the all time high for excitement 
J n L - V. C. football. One of the Ches- 

er boy s ran back the opening kick-off 
, r a score to give his team a 6-0 
^ The score remained unchanged 

, r ^e next fifty-nine minutes of 
y a y- Late in the last period Lebanon 
o lev showed signs of life and 

l 'eatened. Finally, on what would 
^ ave been the last play of the game

BacMeld Veteran 


One of our veteran backs is Johnny 
Walmer, hard plugging gridiron warrior 
from Jonestown. Johnny did not have 
the benefit <>f high school experience, but 
he has overcome that handicap and is 
now one of Coach Frock's dependab.e 

Sports Shots 

Now that the football season has 
reached its half way mark, it is quite 
proper that a check-up be made con- 
cerning the teams which have come 
through thus far unscathed. In our 
own state of Pennsylvania there are sev- 
en teams, more or less important, that 
have yet to taste defeat. All but one 
of these, however, have engaged in dead- 
locks. Only "Hooks" Mylin's Lafayette 
Maroons have a "won all," and further- 
more they are one of the few teams in 
the whole country which have not been 
scored upon. Only the most optimistic 
of Maroon rooters hoped for a conquest 
of N. Y. U. last week. "Hooks" and 
his boys have four games ahead of them, 
and not one of them is against a pow- 
er-house, so an undefeated season is 
highly possible up Easton way. 


Among the other gridiron "powers" in 
Pennsylvania that have won or tied all 
their games 1 are Villanova, Temple, and 
Pittsburgh, the latter being the Key- 
stone State's candidate for the mythical 
national championship. All those elevens 
have a rocky road to Dublin, so any 
predictions would be dangerous. Of the 
lesser powers Dickinson, Lock Haven 
Teachers, and Albright are still holding 
their helmeted he,ads high. The Dickin- 
sonians are experiencing their best sea- 
son in quite a while in spite of a small 
squad. Lock Haven is once again the 
class of the State Teachers Colleges, 
while Albright is just as it has been ever 
since Dick Riffle became a member >f 
the Red and White gridiron machine. 

Going farther afield, we note that 
fourteen other major elevens have sur- 
vived all their tests up to this point. 
Dartmouth, Yale, and Holy Cross have 
upheld the prestige of New England, 
but the White Mountain Indians and 
the Yale Bulldogs must tangle soon. 
Holy Cross has had several close calls 
including the one last week when they 
eked out a 6-0 win over Western Mary- 
land. The mighty Fordham Kams willy 
have a great defense, but their offense 
has not been too formidable. Only Ohio 
State «>f the Big Ten is in the highest- 
stepping class. Out on the Pacific coast 
the Caliofrnia Golden Bears leaped over 
a mighty hurdle by overcoming the 
Southern California Trojans. 


The girls hockey team will travel 
to Philadelphia this weekend to play 
on the fields of the Philadelphia Crick- 
et Club. Eleven players were chosen 
to make the trip. As preparation for 
the experienced teams they shall have 
to face on this trip, the team played 
a practice game Wednesday at Ship- 
pensburg State Teachers College. 

The players will leave the campus 
Saturday morning at six o'clock, and 
the first contest is scheduled at elev- 
en. After the lunch to be served at 
the Cricket Club, the girls play a com- 
plete game with a team to be chosen 
just before the game is scheduled to 
begin. In the evening a banquet will 
be held, followed by hockey movies 
to close the evening. 

Sunday morning the team will play 
another game with opponents yet to 
be chosen. The afternoon will be fea- 
tured by hockey movies and hockey 
discussions, at the conclusion of which 
the gathering will close its activities. 

The purpose of this program is to 
organize hockey as a game of pleas- 
ure, not one of keen competition. Leb- 
anon Valley has been honored in this 
respect as her team is one of the few 
in this region that has been asked to

While emphasis is placed first on 
high quality of acting, distinguished 
style and strict observance of the text, 
the productions are rich in pictorial 
beauty, each successive s>cene being a 
picturesque representation of the par-

Over a period of ten years the 
company has played not only to the 
general theatre-going public whose 
enjoyment in the performances is pri- 
marily from the entertainment point 
of view, but also to the most critical 
and discriminating audiences com- 
posed of teachers, students of the

Under the chaperonage of Dr. Lietzau, 
dean of West Hall, the time was spent 
in singing, chatting, watching the clouds 
where the moon ought to have been, 
helping the horses on the hills, and nu- 
merous other pastimes. 

The party returned to West Hall safe- 
ly in spite of the lack of a stop light 
in the rear, the lantern having fallen a 
victim to the vicissitudes of life early h,

served in the parlors, acted as a pacify-

The Kampus Keyhole 

By Archie, the Anarchist 

Dr. Herd Speaks on 

Eastern Situation 

There is something intangible about 
dogs which yet makes itself felt among 
men — a premise which has been recently 
borne out by the strange case of Mr. 
Kenneth Mocker, whose favorite arm- 
chair summered at the home of one of 
the collitch charwomen. On its return 
to the ancestral Hocker Hall, Mr. H. 
spent some hours in removing sundry 
dog-hairs from the more horizontal parts 
thereof. Afterwards, he betook himself 
to class where he attracted no little at- 
tention to the said himself by— shall we 
say? — scratching the pedal parts — there- 


One of the reasons why they stay in 
the school teaching racket, by their own 
sworn confession, says a friend of ours 
concerning our deah, deah profs, is that 
it keeps them young. This sentiment, 
we regret to say, seemed unto our cold, 
agnostic hearts a bit of a hyperhole In 
its own quaint way until the other day, 
when, during our matutinal perambula- 
tions — look it up yourself; we had to, 
didn't we? — we came upon one Prof. 
S. O. G. Grimm having what was later 
described to us as the time of his life 
sitting behind one of the local children 
whilst the latter pedalled a bicycle. 
Youth, we see, will have its fling. 

Some weeks ago we carried an article 
in these columns having to do with Mr. 
Robert Boran of the Men's Dorm. It 
is our pleasure and privilege, ladeez and 
gintlemen, to welcome back Mr. Boran 
who comes to us on this occasion with a 
confidential query concerning a very ab- 
struse point which has been distressing 
him for some time past. What Mr. Bor- 
an longs to know is briefly this: "Is it 
true that girls, too, have — dandruff?" 

The dandruff editor advises him to 
send for our free booklet. 


Sometime during the early part of this 
week, we were loafing, according to our 
ancient custom, by the front doorway 
in North Hall watching the stream of 
men go by, and incidentally hoping to 
see one of those little dramas enacted 
before our eyes of which we are pleased 
to give the public an accounting from 
time to time. People came in, and peo- 
ple came out — in a manner most fright- 
fully uninteresting from our perhaps bi- 
ased point of view; we were about to 
give up in deep despair, when — just in 
the nick of time to save us from running 
a syndicate story in this space today, 
came Bert Gingrich, the collitch handy 
man. The Bert, a mighty man was he, 
with wrenches' in his hand. He zipped 
past us without so much as a friendly 
nod of recognition, pausing only long 
enough to fumble with the doorknob, 
which was loose, and say, as an exit line, 
"Trouble, trouble, trouble!" 

Instantly, Bruno, our newshound, as- 
serted himself. "Archy," he said, "fol- 
low that man." We followed him. 
"Please, sir," said we, attacking him in 
the approved Wordsworthian manner, 
"What is it you do?" "Bah!" said he, 
and rushed on. Nothing daunted, how- 
ever, we set our secret operatives to 
work, and discovered the following facts: 

Fact A — Bert was fixing the shower 
in the girls' dorm. 

Fact B — May Mulholland was unaware 
of Fact A. 

Fact C — Carthago, delenda est.

Thus, the cellophane serves only as a

Another incident to the same effect 
occurred when their party put into a 
Japanese port at Yokohama upon first 
landing. A suggestion of sanitation was 
made by the Japanese officials in disin- 
fecting boat and passengers. But when 
their disinfectant supply gave out, they 
did not replenish it, but rather discon- 
tinued the process. Some ports made 
no pretense at sanitary precautions of 
this kind at all. 

Dr. Herd's stay at the Educational 
Conference, from August 2 to 7, marked 
the beginning of Sino-Japanese tension. 
This tension was noticeable in the change 
of attitude toward the American visitor. 
At their arrival, the party was welcomed 
by several dozens r* Japanese officials. 
Later these offf a became occupied 
with the rupture of relations with Chi- 
na, and visitors received less attention. 

The Imperial University, headquar- 
ters of the Conference, was the scene of 
military excitement and agitation, Dr. 
Herd related. Not only there, but 
throughout the Nipponese Island, and 
most of all in Tokio, preparation was 
being made for armed conflict. On the 
streets were to be found cars enlisting 
volunteers. At the ports were to be seen 
soldiers embarking for China. 

In the face of this situation, it was 
most difficult to discuss the theme of 
the conference, namely, world peace 
through education. The conference had 
great value, nevertheless, in acquainting 
those attending with the Japanese sys- 
tem of education. 

This is simply a copy of the French 
system, although being dictatorial in- 
stead of democratic in organization. In 
this way nothing is taught except it add 
to the prestige or "face" of Japan. In 
fact, history and geography, Dr. Herd 
emphasized, are limited in the elemen- 
tary schools particularly to the history 
and geography of the Japanese empire. 

So education becomes an instrument 
by which Japan has been shaping her 
destinies. Japan has long ago laid the 
plans which are now being executed, Dr. 
Herd affirmed, and in closing she pre- 
sented the Japanese course of empire a. 1 -, 
outlined by Dr. Campbell five years ago. 
According to this outline, Japan has 
three principal objectives. 

First, she wents to divide China into 
five parts. Of these five, Japan already 
holds two, Korea and Manchuko. The 
remaining three are Peiping, Nanking 
and Canton. Then Japan will be ready 
to take over the Philippines. 

Second, Japan wants, after centurie:- 
of inferior feeling, to take her place 
among the powers of the world, and to 
control the Far Eastern situation. 

Third, Japan seeks a solution to her 
population and commercial problems. 
She looks on China, Dr. Herd concluded, 
as a place where her crowded millions 
may migrate, and where Japanese indus- 
try may draw its raw materials, as well 
as market its finished products.

At seven o'clock the Wig and Buck- 
le Club, Lebanon Valley's receptacle 
for escaping dramatic talent, will 
present the one act comedy, "Wurzel- 
Flummery" by A. A. Milne, directed 
by Louise Stoner. The cast is made 
up of Dean Aungst, Barbara Bowman, 
Dorothy Long, Benjamin Goodman, 
William Clark, and Ellen Ruppers- 
berger. Dr. George Struble will su- 
pervise the production. Tickets for 
the performance will be on sale at 
the price of ten cents until five o'clock, 
when the admission price will be 
raised to twenty-five cents. 

The annual freshman-sophomore 
tug of war will take place at ten 
o'clock on the banks of the exceeding- 
ly cold Quittapahilla. The freshman 
class of last year won their battle 
with their sophomore opponents by a 
narrow margin. After each team had 
pulled the other into the chilly waters 
once, the third and deciding tug was 
made on dry land with the freshies 
winning by a five minute time ad- 
vantage, as it were. It promises to be 
quite an event with the Quittie so 
cold and the competition so hot. 

The program tor the day will be 
wound up, or wound down, by the L 
Club dance in the Annville High 
School gymnasium at eight o'clock, 
m addition to its holding the dance 
jf the evening the L Club will be in 
charge of refreshment concessions 
and their sale at the football game as 
.veil as the sale of programs. 

Dr. Shenk expects to distribute ex- 
jerpts from the College Forum of 
afty years ago, something that should 
prove interesting, not only from the 
standpoint of tne articles and fea- 
tures therein, but also as a contrast 
jf past methods of college newspaper 
jr magazine style with those of the 
present day. 

Organizations cooperating in the 
aomecoming day program are the 
i.M.C.A., the Y.W.C.A., the Men's 
ienate, the W.S.G.A. and the four 
iterary societies.

ff.&B. Presents Play 
For Homecoming Day 


Louise Stoner Directs; Play 
Receives Lukewarm Recep- 
tion From Audience 

by Sylva Harclerode 

The Wig and Buckle presentation 
f Milne's play, "Wurzel-Flummery," 
was received by a lukewarm audience 
last Saturday evening. 

Louise Stoner deserves considerable 
praise for her capable direction of the 
play, despite the late arrivals of some 
of the characters as well as the unex- 
cusable absences from practices. 

The play was a comedy of unusua' 
possibilities. Dean Aungst as Robert 
Crawshaw, M.P., handled his part 
a bly. His poLe has become a stage 
tradition on this campus. Once fault, 
that of a change in accent as he ad- 
dressed different members of the cast, 
might have been remedied. Another 
much more grievous fault than the 
first was his failure to memorize his 
lines verbatim. This was not as ap- 
parent in his own speeches as in those 
of the others, especially of Ben 
Goodman's; for by giving the wrong 
cue, or no cue at all, he succeeded in 
putting the rest in very crucial posi- 
nous;- 'mr. Goodman must be com- 
mended for the graceful way in which 
he covered up the e mistakes. For 
the most part, however, Crawshaw 
held his audience and his facial reac 
tions were supremely well done. 

Barbara Bowman as Margare 
Crawshaw portrayed a rather unemo 
tional part. She retained her stage 
identity without stealing the show, s

Lloyd Beamesderfer, a Junior a> 
Lebanon Valley College, has been ap- 
pointed pastor of the United Brethren 
Church at Mt. Aetna, Pa. His appoint- 
ment fills the vacancy left by the 
transfer of the former pastor to a 
charge in Lebanon. 

Lloyd says that his father, also a 
minister of the United Brethren 
Church, once had the charge he now 
0c cupies, and that Dr. Butterwick of 
Lebanon Valley College is also a for- 
mer incumbent of the pastorate. His 
| at her now preaches at the Bethany 
United Brethren Church in Reading. 

The Mt. Aetna parish, according to 
the established formula voted last 
Friday to confirm the new appoint- 
men t, thus placing the final stamp of 
a Pproval upon it after two trial ser- 
ins which were delivered on the two 
^ceding Sundays.

Aetna are of Germanic extrac-

Chemistry Club Meets 

After a year of inactivity the Che- 
mistry Club held its first program 
meeting last Tuesday evening in the 
chemistry lecture room. 

Harlan Kinney gave a report en- 
titled The Manufacture of Lime in a 
Million Dollar Lime Plant, in which 
he told about the process of making 
lime from his experience with the Mil- 
lard Company. Henry Schott then 
explained about the various mining 
operations in the iron ore mine. Fol- 
lowing this there was a report on 
Chemistry m the Modem Steel Plant 
by John Groff. The report pointed 
out the different ways in which chem- 
istry is used in the making of steel.

Students and Faculty 
Discuss Adjustments 


Continuance of Recreation 
Hour Recommended ; 
Thomas Elected Secretary 

by Anne Rutherford 
The student- faculty committee held its 
first meeting this year last week. At the 
meeting the condition of the campus, es- 
pecially of buildings, in regards to re- 
pairs and adjustments was discussed. 
The committee also considered several 
petitions concerning the food situation at 
L. V. C. Among the recommendations 
made were the placing of drinking foun- 
tains in the Day Student's Room and in 
West Hall, and the continuance of the 
Recreational Hour every Tuesday and 
Thursday evening from six-thirty to 
seven-thirty. Another part of the busi- 
ness meeting consisted of the election of 
Joseph Thomas as secretary. 

The student-faculty committee exists 
for the purpose of hearing petitions of in- 
dividuals and organizations, and it also 
entertains suggestions and criticisms. All 
students are asked to be on the lookout 
for conditions that can be improved in 
order to better campus life. The students 
are in this way given a chance to open 
discussions with members of the faculty. 

The committee is comprised of Cathe- 
ine Mills, Adolph Capka, Amy Monteith,

Sophs Drag Frosh In Quittie 

by Carl 

Coach Curvin Thompson celebrated his 
second straight undefeated season in 
tug competition last Saturday, when his 
sophomore team yanked their freshmen 
competitors, if they can properly be said 
to have offered any competition, into the 
turbid and turbulent waters of the Quit- 
tapahilla, and in record time too. Com- 
pared to last year's gruelling struggle of 
three heats, the last of which lasted al-

most a half hour, this year's contest was 
as snappy as a course in Philosophy. 

The freshmen showed woefully their 
lack of proper practice in their faulty 
coordination and their "folding-up" ra- 
ther quickly. In contrast, the sopho- 
mores showed that their experience of 
last year had greatly benefitted them.

Girls' Band Wins Prize 

Masqueraders of all sorts and des- 
criptions participated in the second 
annual Hallowe'en parade of Annville 
last Thursday evening. Tho»e who 
were making a show of what they 
were not ranged from hobos to robots 
and from drum and bugle corps to 
Sons and Daughters of the Falling 

The Lebanon Valley Girl's Band 
which competed with several others 
bands of the vicinity, captured the 
twelve dollar prize. This was contri- 
buted by merchants of Annville and 
organizations of the town. 

The parade was greatly aided by a 
delegation from the Men's Dormitory. 
With shouts of "Boots" and Nazi sa- 
lutes they added a touch of German 
atmosphere by means of the original 
Lebanon Valley goose-step to the par- 

Horn and Koontz Speak 
to Life Work Recruits 

by John Ness 

The Life Work Recruits opene^ 
their meeting of November 1 in North 
Hall parlor at 6:45 P. M. The opening 
meditation was conducted by the lead- 
er, Jane Ehrhart. Then Irene Ranci, 
and Virginia Niessner gave a beauti 
ful rendition of the song "Follow 
Me." The devotions were led by Paul 
Slonaker and John Ness. 

The subject of the evening wa. 
"The Bible." Martha Jane Koont; 
spoke on the "Book of Books," and in 
her talk showed how all books fal 
under one of the six lists, namely, 
history, biography, commentaries 0. 
current public affairs, newspapers, 
ciences, and fiction. She very appro 
priately showed how the Bible can b. 
placed under each one of these lists 

Paul Horn gave the other talk 
the evening on the subject of "Tht. 
Bible in the Life of the Student." H<, 
told how the Bible had influenced stu- 
dents in the past and how it can influ 
ence the students of the present. Each 
one was urged to use his Bible to 1 
greater advantage in the future, be 
cause of all the literary and spirituai 
value therein. 

College Students Take 
Medical Aptitude Test 

by Nathan Kantor 

A Pre-Medical Aptitude Test will be 
given to all Pre-Medical students who 
expect to enter Medical school by the fall 
of 1938 on December 3, at three o'clock 
P. M. in the Biology lecture room. 

The test is a requirement of the As- 
sociation of Medical Colleges. Its purpose 
is to measure ones general information 
and scientific background and his ability 
to learn material similar to that in Medi- 
cal school and to draw accurate conclu- 
sions from a given data. 

The tests are received from the offices 
of the Association completely sealed, and 
are not opened until the hour of the ex- 
amination. Immediately followng this, 
the papers are sent to Washington, D. C, 
for correction. There the information se- 
cured therefrom is kept on file, where it 
is available to the various medical 
schools. The test here will be conducted 
by Dr. Derickson. 

Homecoming Battle 
Won on Field Goal 


Rozman's 30- Yard Boot In 
First Period Subdues P. M. 
C. Cadets 

by Samuel Rutter 
Playing before a crowd of 3,000 
opectators, Lebanon Valley's Flying 
iJuichmen made it two in a row over 
„ne Pennsylvania Military College Ca- 
rets by winning 3-0 on Tony Roz- 
xiian's 30-yard field goal. The game 
as a whole was rather devoid of 
ihrilL. Two later field goal attempts 
mailed and an L. V. C. touchdown was 
iost by a fumble, but a~ide from that, 
intercepted passes and a mighty wind 
nominated the day. 

Kozman opened the game by kick- 
ing deep into Cadet territory. Leba- 
non Valley immediately got into a 
i.avorab.e position when Perugino 
.^cived out of bounds on his own 23. 
*ms advantage was quickly dissipat- 
ed however as Sylvester intercepted

Preceding the presentation of the 
Wig and Buckle piay Saturday even- 
ing, the four literary societies spon- 
sored an entertaining program. Will- 
iam Clark, a Phdo member and Mas- 
ter of Ceremonies, opened the pro- 
gram with a detailed and interesting 
oration on "How to Speak in Public 
Correctly." Max Flook, supposedly a 
carpenter, added a bit of humor to 
the address by frequently interrupt- 
ing and asking idiotic questions. He 
finally succeeded in ousting the orator 
xrom the stage and then proceeded to 
sing the whole of "The Man on the 
Flying Trapeze." 

The master of ceremonies then took 
the Clionian portion of the program. 
Mildred Gardner, accompanied by 
Mary Ann Controneo, rendered "Syl- 
via." The Clionian trio, consisting of 
Arlene Hoffman, Isabel Cox, and Jean 
Schock, sang "That Old Feeling." 

Delphian's contribution to the ev- 
ening's entertainment was the air 
"The Russian Slumber Song," vocal- 
ized by the Delphian Chorus. The 
program's climax was reached when 
Kalo's David Lenker displayed his ar- 
tistic ability by sketching three black- 
board pictures, the football victory, a 
Lebanon Valley co-ed, and a fasci- 
nating scene in colors of a moonlight 
night. While he was drawing James 
Ralston played several soft piano se-

W. & B. Presents Play 

For Homecoming Day 

The Coll egiate Review 

(By Associated Collegiate Press) 

The "half-i'^ce test" popularized by a leading cosmetic house, came into 
its own during rat week at Mercer College. Freshmen women had to appear 
one day with their hair done up in plaits and make-up on one side of the 
face only. 

"Westwood School for Girls" is no more. Rivals can no longer call the 
University of California at Los Angeles by that name because the two to one 
ratio of women to men has disappeared. This year 3,509 coeds and 3,579 men 
are registered. 

Three hundred thirty-seven gallons of apple butter have been made in 
the kitchens of Glenville State Teacher's College in West Virginia. This al- 
lows each student 1,438 teaspoons or two teaspoonfuls per slice of bread — if 
the student consumes 719 slices of bread during the year. 

Last week-end at Purdue males could not attend the free union tea dance 
unless they wore a flower presented to them by some coed. Each girl had two 
flowers to bestow. It was all part of the arrangement by which, for the space 
of three days, the men became the "weaker sex" as far as dating was con- 

A junior at Ohio State University attended the wrong class. He attended 
the same wrong class three weeks in a row. He had, in fact, attended this 
class, completed the course and taken a "B" in it two years before. He ex- 
plained that he had slept through most of the classes and hadn't gotten 
around to buying a text, so — 

The band at the University of Illinois owns nine tons of tunes arranged 
by Sousa. At least 2,889 band arrangements, formerly belonging to John 
Philip Sousa, are in the possession of the band. They weigh more than 18,000 

Title of the world's tiniest coed is now held by Catherine Cooper, Santa 
Anna sophomore. She is just 56 inches tall, nosing out her nearest competi- 
tor by 1 inch. 

Bing Crosby received an honorory Ph.D. degree from Gonzaga Univer- 
sity, his alma mater. Said he, "Bob Burns told me that now I am a doctor of 
philisophy in music, I should start immediately to patch up some of the things 
that I have been doing to music in the last ten years." 

The old Athenian school of peripatetic philosophers has its modern coun- 
terpart in the trailer school which Dean Guy S. Millberry of the University 
of California's school of dentistry has purchased to meet the demands made 
on him for lecturet. 

A coed at Ohio Wesleyan University earned her pin money by catching 
night crawlers. Armed with a flashlight and a tin can she caught them and 
sold them to her father for 50 cents a hundred. She went into the fish worm 
business several years ago. 

A coed at the University of Missouri fainted in a history class when the 
professor was demonstrating the use of the German saw-toothed bayonet in 
the world war. He had been discussing military tactics and had become a 
trifle too realistic for the girls.

to speak. While her posture, on the 
other hand, might have been im- 
proved, yet she is promising and must 
be watched. 

Dorothy Long in the part of Viola 
was an unprecedented and pleasant 
surprise. She was definitely a type 
and unusually well-suited to the part. 
She ruined some of her lines, how- 
ever, with amateurish smiles when the 
play got a laugh. Actions such as 
these are vaguely reminiscent of high 
school productions. She played the 
part of a person, an aimless person, 
supposedly in love; she was aimless 
but not quite convincing in the amor- 
ous aspect. She looked the part to- 
tally, walked the part well, and gazed 
the part intently. In fact, with a lit- 
tle more "drill-master" enforcement 
on the direction end, she surely would 
have been "tops." 

Ben Goodman gave a very com- 
mendable portrayal of Richard Meri- 
ton, M.P. He kept his character at 
all times, and the only criticism worth 
offering is that he could have devel- 
oped a more convincing laugh, from 
throaty enjoyment to a gradual di- 
minishing of volume. Such a point 
is of small import as compared to the 
excellent "covering up" he did, and 
suffice it to say that he was a firm 
and well-acted Richard. 

Ellen Ruppersberger, one of our 
blossoming frosh, represented a typi- 
cal maid with an excellently well- 
timed entrance and clear enunciation. 
As prompter, too, she proved her abil- 
ity by prompting unheard by the au- 

As for William Clark, or Denis 
Clifton, he remained in character, 
kept a recognizable stage presence, 
and possessed an accent that remained 
constant throughout the production. 
The most important trait of an actor, 
however, at times he forgot. The au- 
dience, due perhaps to the unusual 
quality of his accent, found difficulty 
in understanding him; and what 
should have brought laughs from 
those listening brought only sighs and 
silences. The most important lines in 
the play were his, for they unveiled 
the mystery of the production. And 
his lines were not delivered as well 
as they should have been. In other 
respects, Clark gave an excellent por- 
trayal. He developed all the small 
jerky curiosities of habit that would 
have done justice to the best of pro- 
fessionals, and he placed himself and 
moved about extremely well. In fact, 
he not only stole the show, but gave 
the most vivid character portrayal of 
the evening. 

In this play was made the first at- 
tempt, for a number of years, to teach 
the actors to do their own make-up, 
so perhaps the following comment 
might be out of place. However, the 
make-up on Barbara Bown|an and 
Dean Aungst was rather poor. From 
the first row in the balcony definite 
black lines were unquestionably ap- 
parent, and they looked more like lines 
than wrinkles. 

Nevertheless, the warmest thanks 
ought to go to Dr. Struble who has 
undertaken the enormous task of de- 
veloping "maker-uppers" from a 
number of persons who have appeared 
in plays, but who know nothing about 
such artistry. 

The members of the faculty 
and the student body join with 
"La Vie" in extending their 
deepest sympathy to Miss Eve- 
lyn Miller, a member of the 
class of 1940, upon the death 
of her father on Monday, No- 
vember 1, at Millersburg, Pa.

Athletic Angles 

The honor of being the 1937 gridiron sensations in 
the East falls upon the Maroons of Lafayette College. 
The Easton team, coached by "Hooks" Mylin, former 
head coach at Lebanon Valley and Bucknell, has won all 
five of its games to date, scoring 68 points to an aggre- 
gate of zero for the opposition. Included among the vic- 
tims are such fine elevens as Georgetown, New York 
University, and Franklin and Marshall, all outfits which 
have had places in the sun in the football world. N. Y. 
U. has beaten the Carnegie Tech Titans, conquerors of 
the powerful Notre Dame Ramblers. 

It is a well recognized fact that no coach can mold a 
strong eleven out of anemic material, but the facts seem to indicate that 
"Hooks" Mylin has almost done that. Last season, under the tutelage of 
Ernie Nevers, former Ail-American from Stanford University and pitcher 
for the St. Louis Browns, the boys on the banks of the Delaware experienced 
a disastrous reason. N. Y. U. soundly thrashed them. Gettysburg eked out 
a 2-0 win, and their ancient rivals, Rutgers and Lehigh, snowed them under 
a barrage of touchdowns. The sooner the 1936 season was forgotten the bet- 
ter. And now it has been forgotten 100%. Coach Mylin assumed the reins 
with the prospects of another gloomy campaign ahead. Even the most opti- 
mistic supporter would not have dared predict a miracle such as has resulted. 
"Hooks" has injected a new spirit into his men, Lafayette now has a real 
offense and a virtually impregnable defense. Just ask Coaches Mai Stevens 
of N. Y. U. and Allen Holman of F. and M.! 

This week the Maroon meets the Scarlet of Rutgers in their last stiff 
test. A victory in this game would put an undefeated season within easy 
reach of the Mylinmen. Washington and Jefferson and Lehigh also remain 
on the schedule, but neither has as yet done anything to inspire the awe of 
the gloomiest cynic. Regardless of the outcome of these three remaining 
games, "Hooks" has done a great piece of work in restoring Lafayette to a 
position of high regard in gridiron warfare. 

In the mountain fastnesses of Colorado there exists a condition contrary 
to a time -honored tradition. The Quarterback of the University of Colorado 
football team is a candidate for a Rhodes Scholarship. This brain trust ol 
gridiron and classroom is one Byron White. With the aid of his excellent, 
direction the Colorado eleven has taken undisputed leadership of the Rocky 
Mountain Conference and even ventured into stronger fields and conquered 
the Missouri team of the Big Six group. Good students among athletes are 
not infrequent, but to find one that is considered worthy of Rhodes Scholar- 
ship mention is quite gratifying. Football provides the means of an educa- 
tor, for many men throughout this country, but few use it to such fine advan- 
tage as Byron White has apparently used it. 

Valkyites to Invade Women's Hockey Team 
Land of the Vikings \ at Phila. Cricket Club 

Upsala Footballers to be Met 
for First Time, on Saturday 
In East Orange 

by Roger B. Saylor 
This Saturday afternoon the foot- 
ball teams of Lebanon Valley and Up- 
sala will establish athletic relations 
between the two schools for the first 
time. The game is to be played on the 
Upsala field in East Orange, New 
Jersey. Past records indicate that the 
game should be one between teams ot 
nearly equal strength. Upsala, while 
little heard of in this state, has been 
rising in the football world in the last 
few years. In fact, they have reached 
the point where Fordham has .ched 
u ted them for next season. 

The Vikings are coached by Paul 
Woerner, graduate of the Unitea 
States Naval Academy and Bob My- 
ers > his assistant. So far this season 
they have played five games, winning 
t^o and losing three. Hobart was met 
' n the season's opener and won 7-0. 

n the second game the Vikings en- 
countered "Hooks" Mylin's sensation- 
al Lafayette Maroons and succumbed 
j° the tune of 33-0. The first victory 

0r the East Orangeites was then re- 
dded at the expense of Washington 
loll ege, the score being 12-0. West-

Ifteen Teams Present at Con-

"he Women's' hockey team went to 

\iladelphia last week-end to play ? 
mber of matches with various team 
m different parts of the state at 

'° Cricket Club, where they staye 

The team arrived at the Cricket 
Club at ten o'clock, and after com- 
pleting the formalities of registra- 
tion played a match against West 
Chester State Teacher's College, the 
main purpose of the game being to 
analyze and correct faulty playing 
technique, especially in the individual 
player. A Miss Cross, who plays cen- 
ter forward on the All-American 
team, umpired the game and stopped 
play frequently to correct imperfect 
methods, and explain the proper way 
to go about it. 

Afterwards, the team went to a 
practice field where they took lessons 
in accurate and skillful hitting un- 
der the guidance of Anne Townsend, 
All-American captain and full-back. 
At the end of this practice period, 
lunch was served, after which play 
was continued, this time, in a match 
with the Harrisburg Hockey associa-

by our correspondent with Cedar Crest 
College, which proved to be the keen- 
est contest of the whole day. This 
game, too was held under the umpire- 
ship of Miss Townsend. 

On Sunday morning there were sev- 
eral lectures illustrated with moving 
pictures of certain foreign teams seen 
by the local eleven on a previous trip 
to the Cricket Club. 

Sunday afternoon there was an ex- 
hibition game between Philadelphia 
and the All-American Team at which 
Miss Gable, the speaker of the pre- 
vious evening, officiated. The score 
has not yet been received. After the 
game, the team started for home, and 
arrived here at nine p. m. 

Fifteen schools were represented at 
the conference, making a total of 150 
delegates. Among the colleges there 
were Wilson, Penn State, Cedar Crest, 
Moravian, Pittsburgh Women's, West 
Chester State Teachers', Kutztown 
State Teacher's, and the Harrisburg 
Hockey Association. The purpose of 
the conference was to discover ways 
and means of improving playing 
methods without such highly competi- 
tive playing as exists at present.

Among the agenda scheduled to be

three nights a week last year with 
the aid of an orchestra paid by the

Clark Speaks On Mexico 
at Bi-Weekly 1. R. C. Meet 

Last night the International Rela- 
tions Club, in its regular bi-monthly 
meeting at the home of Dr. Stevenson, 
held a highly informal discussion on 
the subject of current trends in Mexi- 
co. The conclusion ultimately reached 
by several members was that some 
one ought to write a book called My 
Experiences as a Spy, or Through 
Africa with Dictionary and Baedeker. 

This remarkable termination to an 
otherwise serious discussion was 
reached by Wm. F. Clark, who man- 
aged to do most of the talking by 
virtue of the right vested in him 
through his authorization to make a 
speech on Mexico. This speech, 
strangely enough, dealt with Mexico. 
Clark, when confronted with this fact 
in an interview, said, "It must have 
been a mistake." 

On the whole, however, the discus- 
sion was serious in tone, and pro- 
gressed toward logical conclusions of 
which space does not permit a full ac-

The Strange Case of Miss Dreas 
(Installment Three): We quote: "I 
had such a wonderful time at the 
dance last Saturday night. And I 
don't think Pete knows about it yet, 
but do you know, I actually couldn't 
sleep for hours after I got home!" 

Oh, sing a song of Postum! 

Life is sad, sad, sad. Its cruelty 
deals hard blows, and strikes with 
ruthless force, especially where Youth 
— ah, Youth! — dwells in tender inno- 
cence. Take for instance the case of 
those two young ladies y-clept the 
Leff twins, of whose number but one 
appeared at Saturday night's brawl, 
tearfully confiding to Mr. Kenneth 
Hocker that she hopes he never again 
will leave Sister dateless— she yearns 

A tragic note is sounded by the 
case of Mr. Dean Aungst, who has 
been induced to shave off the evi 
dences of budding manhood or some 
thing. The fact that Strayer and Co., 
High Quality Hair-dyes, Paints, and 
Varnishes, invaded the privacy of his 
sleeping chambers on a midnight 
damp and dreary not so long ago is 
thought by some observers to have 
some bearing on Mr. Aungst's deci- 
sion. Ah, where are the hairs of yes- 


The reason Mildred Gangwer was 
trying to get into Cather's chariot last 
night without a key had not to do 
with felonious motives. Mr. Cathcr 
had a date to meet her there, but, 
alas, alas, he forgot. 

haps even more sadly results his team's 
lack of practice. He almost got away, 
but he was nailed by a flying tackle, car- 
ried out in the Quittie, and submerged 
three times by a reverent group of four 
sophs. Such seems to be the quaint cus- 
tom attendant to such an event. The 
winning coach escaped scot-free, al- 
though Thompson can recall a time when 
the victorious coach did not get away in 
such a manner. 

Having won the toss-up for position, 
Coach Thompson decided to defend the 
east goal, or more properly bank. Fresh- 
man Fred Shadle was elected to wade the 
creek with the rope although there was 
considerable support for one Robert 
Hackman. However all this support was 
not amiss as he was dampened a bit later. 
Senator Robert Tschop gave the starting 
signal by throwing a stone into the creek, 
and with its splash the tug was on. The 
sophomores leaned forward and up a 
little on their rope and with an agonizing, 
heartrending cry of "Pull !" from the lips 
of their coach, they leaned back, and the 
beginning of the end was already in sight. 
The freshmen heard,, saw and felt, and. . 
. .shivered. Keeping nigh perfect time 
to Thompson's beat, the sophomores 
slowly but inexorably dragged their op- 
ponents closer and closer to the impend- 
ing doom. At last freshmen No. i man, 
Carl Witmeyer, was slipping and sliding 
on the treacherous mud, struggling to 
keep his team in the fight, but to no avail. 
One by one they slid off the brink into 
he abyss. It was then that anchor-man 
Jordan performed his incredible feat of 
submarining under the man in front of 
him and emerging from the mud in the 
midst of his team-mates. He didn't state 
whether he had gotten tired of being 
back there by himself and had decided to 
join the crowd, or whether he couldn't 
help it. Whatever his motives, the inci- 
dent indicates in what a demoralized 
tate the freshmen found themselves. Only 
three minutes had elapsed between the 
time that the signal was given to start 
and the time that the last freshman found 
his personality submerged in the flood of 
water that rolled over him. 

Nothing daunted, the once-vanquished 
yearlings continued across the creek in 
:he direction in which they had been al- 
ready started, while the sissy sophs walk- 
ed around by the bridge. At this junc 
ture occured one of those little ironies of 
history that are so much talked about. 
Coach Smith put in his lighter men so 
as to save the first-stringers for the "next 
tug." However, as it happened there 
wasn't any next tug, nor need for the 
freshman "varsity" either. The sopho 
mores, taking their places in the muddy 
holes donated to them by the opposition 
and with their line filled with substitutes, 
once more swept, or pulled, all before 
them. It took a bit longer, because of the 
number of lighter men in line; neverthe 
less in another seven minutes the fresh 
men once more had been launched into 
the briny deep, with anchor-man Jordan 
once more taking a terrific beating. 

By virtue of their winning these two 
heats the sophomores were proclaimed 
the victors of the day and the freshmen 
the chumps. Vac Vtictis!

in thin air with a holding penalty. 
Kre^s kicked out of danger. Rozman 
grabbed a Cadet pass on the visitors' 
40 and ran it back to the 27. Three 
attempted Kress to Frey passes went 
for naught, but on the third one a 
P. M. C. man was detected holding 
so L. V. C. was awarded a first down 
on the 20. Three yards were gainea 
on three tries, then Rozman droppej 
back to try another placement kick. 
This boot, a mighty one from the 28- 
yard line, was retarded by a strong 
wind, hit the crossbar and bounceu 
oack onto the playing field. A twen- 
,y-nine yard pass, Elko to Sylvester, 
gave the Cadets a first down on the; 
Valley 12 near the end of the first; 
half. Spang picked up two yards oti 
a reverse after Elko had failed toj 
gain. A lateral, Elko to Piff, was good; 
for five. Piff failed to get the first) 
down, so Lebanon Valley took the ball] 
The half ended just as Rozman made! 
a first down. 

The Flying Dutchmen penetrated 
deep into the visitors' territory early 
in the third period, but were unable 
to score. The P. M. C. cause was aid- 
ed no little when Kress fumbled the 
subsequent punt and the Cadets re- 
covered. Runs by Elko, Spang and 
Piff put the ball on the Valley 18. A 
momentary fumble by Elko resulted 
in an 8-yard loss. On the fourth down 
Stern tried a futile field goal from the 
35, but it fell far short. The wind 
hampered Kress' punts the rest of the 
period, but the line held the Cadet 
backs in check. 

Kress' recovery of Spang's fumble 
early in the fourth quarter gave the 
Blue and White another chance to 
score. On the third down Kress gained 
a first down on the P. M. C. 8. Kress 
smashed the line for one yard. Kuhn 
made three through the line. Kress 
gained one-half yard. On the fourth 
down Kress fumbled and Stern recov- 
ered on the one-foot line. After P. M. 
C. punted out, Rozman essayed a field 
goal from the 15, but he kicked it 
far wide of the uprights. 

A recapitulation shows that P. M. 
C. registered eight first downs to L. 
V. C.'s seven. Each team was penal- 
ized 35 yards. Tony Rozman has now 
kicked four field goals. The team has 
cored a total of 26 points. 

Notes on Books 

by Mary Touchstone 
There is a bewildering variety of 
new books in the library, every onj 
of them well worth reading. Some of 
the most outstanding are reviewed to- 

If you are a camera fiend, there are 
two books written especially on this 
subject. "New Ways in Photography," 
by Jacob Deschin, treats primarily 
methods in photography and discusse.-; 
branches of photography that are lit- 
Je known to the amateur. "Photog- 
raphy," by C. E. Kenneth Mees, tells 
the story of photography from the 
art of the oldtime professional with a 
burdensome pack on his back to the 
modern amateur with a moving pic- 
ture camera in his pocket. 

Last year it was "Gone With the 
Wind." This year everyone is read- 
ing "And So, Victoria," by Vaughan 
Wilkins. The period treated is the 
time of the Georges befores the ac- 
cession of Victoria to the throne, a 
time cf plots and counterplots, royal 
scandal and shame. 

For the readers of Edna St. Vincent 
Milay there is both a book by her 
and one about her. "Conversation at 
Midnight," written by her, contains a 
sequence of poems — the story of six 
men of widely different tastes and ap- 
titudes who met for dinner, and of 
the conversation that emued. "Edna 
St. Vincent Millay," by Elizabeth At- 
kins, will help the reader of Miss Mil- 
lay's poetry to a deeper understand- 
ing of her poems and of the times 
]h which they are written.

the line-up against Shenandoah, but 
he may be back this week. 

In spite of the fact that East Or- 
ange is a considerable distance from 
Annville, the Flying Dutchmen can 
be assured that a large delegation of 
supporters will be on hand for the 
encounter. School spirit has been 
spasmodic thus far, but just watch 
what support the Blue and White gets 
when it starts prancing over the sod

After two weeks of regular rehear-

new Wig and Buckle enterprise, "Post

veteran style. Rehearsal of the first 
act of the two-act play is practically 
completed, and work on the second act 
has gone forward. The play will be 
given Monday night, November 22, in 
Engle Hall. 

"Post Road," written by Wilbur 
Steele and Norman Mitchell, is filled 
with moments of high drama, scandal, 
excitement, and comedy. First pro- 
duced in 1934 in the Mask Theatre in 
New York, it ran for over two hun- 
dred performances. The theme deaL

The Junior Class will present as 
their play the comedy, "The Women

written by the Quintero Brothers. The 
play deals with the strange results

The play will be given on December

is dominated to a large degree by the 
Spanish priest, Don Julian, played by 
Benjamin Goodman, and Concha, por- 
trayed by Jean Marburger. 

Shakespeare Players 
Perform Commendably 


Competent Acting by Hendri-

by William F. Clark 
In re: HAMLET and THE MER- 
CHANT OF VENICE, by William 
Shakespeare. Presented Thursday, Nov. 
4. by the Bruce-Hendrickson Shake- 
spearian Repertoire Company. 

The life of a dramatic critic is one 
of which the difficulites are more nu- 
merous and more frequent in their 
occurence than might commonly be 
supposed. His office is not, as some 
think, merely to spend his life in a 
pleasantly insignificant way by going 
to the theatre in the evening and 
thinking up clever things to say at its 
expense in the morning. No, there 
are a few flies in the ointment — and 
che greatest of these is one William 
Shakespeare, playwright. Though he 
has been dead, of course, since 1616, 
nis high, hovering spirit still chants 
i,he fatal incantation whereby great 
critics, like great actors, are situated 
in their proper place in the sun, and 
bad critics, like the actor who called 
aimself Monsieur Jambon for three 
years before he found out how appro- 
priate it was, are exposed for what 
they are. 

In which case it would seem that, 
in our case, caution would be the wis- 
est sort of valor, and radical state-

Albright College's Charter Day Cele- 
bration, held last Thursday, November 
4, was attended by President Clyde A. 
Lynch, of Lebanon Valley College, who 
gave the main address of the occassion. 
Dr. Lynch spoke on "Balancing the Bud- 
get," or the social value of extra- 
curricular activities. As part of the same 
celebration he received the degree of 
Doctor of Laws. 

The program was opened at eleven 
o'clock with an academic procession 
from the Administration Building to the 
Chapel. After several selections by the 
glee club of Albright College, President 
Kline gave a brief address on "The Al- 
bright of Yesterday and Tomorrow." 
Following this Dr. Lynch delivered his 
address and degrees were conferred. 

Dr. Lynch is spending most of this

Girls' Hockey Team at 
Cedar Crest Play Day 

Sophomore-Freshman Team 
Organized; To Play Linden 
Hall and Lititz High 

Last Saturday, November 6, the 
girls' hockey team attended a hockey 
playday at Cedar Crest College, in 
Allentown. The other representatives 
at the play day were Shippensburg 
State Teachers College and Susque- 
hanna University. 

The team left for Allentown early 
Saturday morning, and in spite of 
having the bus break down under 
them, arrived at Cedar Crest at 10:30. 
After the team had been assigned a 
definite room which was theirs 
throughout the day, L. V. engaged 
Shippensburg in the first game, re- 
sulting in a scoreless tie. After lunch, 
sandwiched between two rest periods 
of an hour's duration apiece, the sec- 
ond game was played, this time with 
a different school as an opponent, Sus- 
quehanna, but with the same 0-0 re- 
sult. Following this the third and last 
game of the day was played with Ce- 
dar Crest. Lebanon Valley, having 
gotten used to it by this time and not 
wanting to be accused of inconsist- 
ency, played its third and last score- 
less tie. The final contest proved to 
be the best game of the day, although 
the comparative scores would seem to 
indicate not much of a difference. 

At 4:30 all the teams met in the 
lounge for a discussion of rules and 
technique, presided over by Miss Lan-

discussion tea was served. A formal

Traditional Rivals 
Combat in Reading 


Flying Dutchmen Must Stop 
Riffle, Albright Ace, or Go 
Down to Defeat 

Once again the time is almost upon us 
when that football game steeped with tra- 
dition and tenseness, the Albright — 
Lebanon Valley encounter, is to be stag- 
ed. For the second year in succession it 
is to be played on the Albright field in 
Reading. Albrights record is one of the 
most imposing in the East while Leban- 
on Valley's is just fair but past records 
indicate that in this game anything at all 
can happen. 

The Albright, attack is built around 
their star back, Dick Riffle. For the 
past two years Dick has been poison to 
the Blue and White, so it is evident that 
he is the man that must be stopped if the 
Flying Dutchmen are to stay in the 
game. Riffle, in addition to his running, 
does the kicking and passing. His run- 
ning mates are Torisi and DeLorenzo, 
and Oslislo. The team displays a wide 
open attack with numerous lateral pass- 
es being used. 

The Red and White line is one of the 
strongest in small college circles. This 
season as yet no opponent has scored 
a point against Albright. Some of the 
fine linemen are "Moose" Disend, Cam- 
marota, and Knox. In the six games play- 
ed to date the I/ions have scored 98 
points while the opposition has a goose-

What is the most difficult college sub- 

j ect ? 

Organic chemistry. 

This is revealed in a study made by 
the Bureau of Educational Surveys, 
New York City. 

The Bureau found that the use of 
college outlines and other supplementary 
aids to study was in direct proportion 
to difficulty in the subject experienced 
by the student and that the number of 
students in organic chemistry using col- 
lege outlines far exceeded that of any 
other course. 

According to the study, science cour- 
ses as a group are a major source of dif- 
ficulty, with history, particularly ancient, 
medieval and European not far behind. 
Study of Shakespeare's plays rates 
"hardest" of the English literature cour- 

The subjects most baffling to students, 
in order of their difficulty, as revealed 
by the survey, are: Organic chemistry, 
statistics, physics, general psychology, 
inorganic chemistry, principles of econ- 
omics, political science.

The world of today is in turmoil, and the world of tomorrow 
promises to develop into even more of a turmoil. Fascism is on the 
march, Japan is on the march, everything is on the march. Most 
of the marchers don't know where they're going but they're on 
their way. Not only is the entire world an armed camp but the 
camp is on fire, with nary a fire-hose or engine in sight. The 
latest general development is the Fascist alliance of Germany, 
Japan, and Italy, pledged to fight communism, whether 
it is threatening or not. And although these countries may be 
financially and economically weak, they are completely mobil- 
lized under a totalitarian authority, and could cause plenty of 
trouble, even if they could not stand up under a prolonged strug- 
gle. Their policy is to use armed force when possible opponents 
are engaged. Japan has struck in China while England and 
France are tied up by Franco in Spain. Italy pursued the same 
policy in her conquest of Ethiopia. They are extending 
their interests in the countries of South America in defiance of 
the Monroe Doctrine. Or is that declaration defunct? At any rate, 
those countries with a glut of raw materials and a limited market 
on which to sell are being solicited to equip the Facist allies. The 
government of Colombia has already signed an agreement with 
Germany allowing the unrestricted purchasing of foreign goods 
only by the latter country. It doesn't take much mental effort to 
figure what such a policy will do to Secretary Hull's plan of trade 
agreements. The same trend is being combatted, happily in Brazil, 
but much pressure is being brought to bear upon the government 
to follow the policy of Colombia. And if Franco wins in Spain the 
the influence on the United States will be enormous, since South 
America derives her culture and civilization from Spain. Perhaps 
the United States would not be so isolated from the rest of the 
world as she thinks she is. 

And what is opposing this united front? The Brussels Con- 
ference which is now in session and getting nowhere fast on the 
Chino-Japanese situation is being held with complete disregard 
for Russia, the greatest of all Asiatic countries and the only one 
competent to take steps in China. The extent to which Japan 
recognizes the importance of Russia can be seen in the report that 
the Japanese troops in Shanghai are really inferior, with inferior 
munitions, while Japan's real strength is mobilized on the Russian 

What the Fascists are really trying to do is to take Russia 
out of the picture. The Russo-French agreement to take care 
of the smaller countries of eastern Europe would not possess much 
meanng if Russia were removed from the leading role in this 
alliance. France is a long way from Poland and even a longer way 
from Czechoslovakia. Germany is really doing what she accused

armanent offered to mankind without re- 

The purpose and problem of the pre- 
sent Competition are mentioned in the 
preamble of the Competition. "Conscious 
of the diverse and vital social values 
existing in our midst; realizing the un- 
limited possibilities for enrichment which 
these values offer to America; and hav- 
ing a vision of a working Democracy 
beautified by means of its variegated 
parts, The New Historical Society ad- 
dresses itself to an investigation of the 
problems of minority peoples or racial 
or alien national origin in the United 
States and its outlying Possessions and 
Territories in terms of their status 
within the population, the extent of their 
participation in the cultural and politi- 
cal processes of our land, their contribu- 
tions to the making of the national tem- 
per, their handicaps and hangovers 
brought over from the Old World and 
the possibility on the one hand and be- 
tween minorities and the majority on 
the other." The subject for the essay 
is as follows; "How can cultural and 
social values of racial minorities in the 
United States and its outlying posses- 
sions and territories be adjusted and 

Democracy rests upon the participa- 
tion of every citizen in the government of 
the country. The minority problem as- 
sumes great signifiance in view of the 
pressures and handicaps which govern 
the participation of minorities in the

life of a democracy. Implicit in the theme 
of the present competition is the ques- 
tion: How can democracy be made 
more vital by the intelligent participation 
of every citizen in the affairs of the 

To add to the attractions at Reading 
this Saturday both college bands will 
play. This year the Albright game is 
the only game played away from the 
home field to which the bands are able 
to go, and this is the first time the girls' 
band joins the boys in going to the Al- 
bright game. 

The bands are joining what promises 
to become a stampede on Reading — with 
faculty members, a large percentage of 
the student body, alumni, and others in- 
terested looking forward to a good time 
on Saturday in the visitor's stands. 

We predict the campus will be a quiet 
— if not desolate — place for a few hours

cast with musical entertainment be- 
tween scenes. He will appear with 
less hair then he usually has, as a 
result of the ministrations of his good 
wife, Betty Bender. Incidentally, al- 
though he has a major part, Rogers 
was the first of the cast to know his 
lines. Curvin Thompson portrays the 
role of the hypocritical minister in a 
commendable manner. Betty Bender 
is the ideal stage wife, playing the 
part of May Preble in a far from am- 
ateurish fashion, and Robert Tschopp 
makes his unspectacular part of Dr. 
Spender outstanding. 

Some of the comedy roles are in 
the hands of the freshmen of the cast 
who are showing promising dramatic 
ability. Margaret Bordwell, Myrtle 
Leff, Laureen Dreas, Mary Elizabeth 
Spangler, and Frank Shenk are ail 
handling their first roles in a college 
production remarkably well. 

Paul Horn is in charge of the quite 
extensive stage settings. Dr. Struble 
says, "I have never dealt with a play 
which involved so many hand-proper- 
ties." The set for "Post Road" is un- 
usual, with a radio operating on the 
stage involving broadcasting from the 
back-stage. Dean Aungst, in the role 
of the radio announcer, intersperses 
the dialogue with news flashes. Henry 
Schott is handling the electrical work 
that is necesary. The hand-properties

Riffle ran 102 yards in helping his team 
roll up 34 points against City College of 
New York. The next Saturday they 
bumped into a stubborn band of Ursinus 
Bears and could get nothing more than a 
scoreless tie. Albright gained many yards 
while Ursinus showed a net loss on the 
offensive, but when a score was immin-

Catching Albright on the rebound, 
Moravian was beaten rather easily on

The spirit shown by the surprising 
m ber of Lebanon Valley alumni and 
'tudents at the Upsala game in East 
' , an ge la£>t Saturday is something of 
hich the school can be proud. Led by 
p an ny Seiverling, the human pepper

in support of their team than 
Jjid the Viking rooters. This depart- 
e nt urges that this fine spirit be

U know that Albright is tough and 
ur boys need all the encouragement 
ff e can give them, so let's all sit to-

The figures on the Upsala game 
bring forth a surprising revelation, 
jlost people thought we were easily 
outscored in the matter of first downs, 
but the fact is that we outscored them 
J543. Those three in the closing 
minutes lifted our total above theirs. 

After Satnrday's results all came in 
a n investigation revealed that there 
are only five elevens that have any 
claim to being major teams that have 
won all their games. At the top of the 
list is the powerful Crimson Tide of 
Alabama, a serious contender for the 
Rose Bowl. Lafayette alone has come 
through unscathed in the East. The 
Maroon overcame its last imposing 
obstacle on Saturday when it beat 
Rutgers. The Santa Clara University 
on the Pacific Coast has re- 



placed the tied California Bears at 
the top of the list even though they 
are not eligible for the Rose Bowl. A 
mighty Colorado eleven has knocked 
off all comers to lead the Rocky Moun- 
tain Conference. Montana State Uni- 
versity, a member of the Pacific Coast 
Conference, but not playing in the 
conference this year, has its best team 
in years and has had easy sailing 
against all opponents. 


Ye sports ed delved into the rec- 
ords and came out with some inter- 
esting figures on the games won and 
lost by various major teams in the 
past ten years. The outstanding grid- 
iron outfit in the country is without 
question the powerful Pitt Panthers 
coached by Jock Sutherland. His 
teams have lost only 12 games in this 
Period, quite a tribute to Sutherland's 
ability to say the least. Here are the

Upsala Defeated 
by Goal-Line Stand 


Rozman Kicks Fifth Field 
Goal of Season to Win East 
Orange Game 

In an interesting, hard-fought game 
'.n East Orange on Saturday, Lebanon 
Valley overcame a strong Upsala 
eleven 3-0 on Tony Rozman's fifth 
field goal of the season. Each team 
had several other scoring opportuni- 
ties, but Dame Fortune was always 
with the defensive side. In the third 
quarter the Vikings reached the Val- 
ley six inch line only to have a bad 
pass from center thwart the bid for 
a touchdown. Good punting by Eddie 
Kress pulled the Blue and White out 
of many a tight situation. 

In the first quarter Vito Miele, Up- 
sala star in the early part of the 
game, accounted for several first 
downs for his team, but in every case 
the Lebanon Valley defense got the 
situation well in hand before serious 
damage resulted. The Flying Dutch- 
men were in a particularly bad spot 
when an Upsala punt went out of 
bounds on the one-yard line. After 
some yards were picked up by rush- 
ing, Kress applied his strong hoof to 
the ball, and when it had finished roll- 
ing it had traveled a total of 72 yards 
to ease the situation. 

Soon after the start of the second 
quarter Upsala fumbled on their own 
45 and Lebanon Valley recovered. 
Kress kicked out of bounds on the 
Viking 10. After the next Upsala 
kick the Annville boys started their 
scoring drive. Rozman caught a pass 
to start the works. Soon thereafter 
he made a first down on the Upsala 
12. The next three plays netted sev- 
en yards, then Rozman dropped back 
to resume his specialty. A perfect 
place kick high over the crossbar gave 
Lebanon Valley a 3-0 lead. Following 
this the Vikings unleashed a fine pass- 
ing attack, but could not reach the 
payoff stripe. The Flying Dutchmen 
also muffed a scoring opportunity. 

Shortly after the third period Mau- 
rice Palmisano, diminutive guard of 
Upsala, recovered a Valley fumble in 
midfield. On the next play Bill King 
advanced the pigskin to the 32. Fol- 
lowing that a Valleyite was espied 
holding so the ball went to the 17- 
yard line. Miele and Albanese carried 
the ball to a first down on the seven. 
The Annville eleven was pushed back 
six and one half yards on the next 
three plays, Albanese gaining five of 
them on one ruth. With a touchdown 
imminent, the Viking pass from cen- 
ter was wild, both King and Miele 
fumbling and Lebanon Valley taking 
possession of the ball. 

Late in the last quarter the home- 
sters put on the last drive into Valley 
territory. Vinnle Albanese, second 
half star, led his team deep into the 
opposition's territory on several fine 
runs between successful passes. Cap- 
tain Davies and his cohorts braced af- 
ter the Vikings passed the 10-yard 
line and took possession of the ball 
to insure the victory. Sensing the 
triumph, the Annville boys proceeded 
to make three consecutive first downs 
before the final whistle blew. 

Even in losing the Vikings proved 
themselves to be an excellent team. 
Coach Woerner's boys were big and 
shifty and were equipped with some 
fine plays. Th«ir passing attack was 
a constant menace, enhanced greatly 
by sensational blocking on almost ev- 
ery play. Miele, until he was forced 
to the sidelines by an injured knee, 
and Albanese thereafter ripped off 
many a yard, but bad breaks kept 
them from scoring. Clarence Graef, 
huge tackle, was the backbone of a 
fine line. 

W. S. G. A. Board Meets 

The Women's Student Governing 
Association board interpreted several 
of its rules more definitely at a meet- 
ing held last week. It decided that 
freshman girls are not permitted to 
speak to male students in the library, 
except to answer questions about 
class work. In addition, they are not 
permitted to speak to men in restau- 
rants except to give an order, and 
they may not communicate with mem- 
bers of the opposite sex in the Ad- 
ministration Building in the class 

It was also agreed upon to give the 
junior and senior girls more freedom 
to the extent of their not being forc- 
ed to ask permission when leaving 
the dormitory at night.

Coeds working at Pennsylvania State College earn approximately $150 
a piece. Their jobs range from chaperoning to clerking in a telegraph office. 

A fire which swept North Hall at Slippery Rock College sent 167 coeds 
scantily clad out into early morning cold. No one was was injured, but dam- 
age totaled about $400,000. 

Two freshmen at Loyola University have identical names — Leonard Fran- 
cis Kowalski. They are both taking premedical courses, are enrolled in the 
same classes, use the same locker, write similarly and got the same grades 
on the entrance tests. They are not related. 

The State of Pennsylvania is looking for college men to fill some of the 
500 vacancies in the motor police force. "There is quite a good future in this 
force for young college men," said Commissioner Percy W. Foote. 

Four University of Toledo football players are "washermen," but they're 
not sissies. To earn their way through school, they do the laundry for the 
varsity team and the gymnasium. Their normal week's wash is 1,000 towels 
and 200 jerseys. 

Believed to be the first wedding held on any Big Ten campus, the mar-

A member of the University Delaware's physical education staff claims 
to be the first college instructor to live in a trailer. He has rented space on 
the rear of the lawn of a family in Newark and students are wagering on how

Princeton University students are about evenly divided on whether the 
United States should keep "hands off" or use an economic boycott in deter 
mining its attitude towards the trouble between Japan and China. Three

Grid Prognosticates De Luxe 

Eddie Dooley, former Dartmouth All-American and present New York 
sports writer and radio sportscaster, has a consulting board of 250 college 
football coaches who advise him on his regular CBS grid prognostications. 
Every week, Dooley contacts these 250 mentors by telephone and telegraph 
as to their frank opinion about the chances of their respective teams in games 
of the ensuing Saturday. Football, according to Dooley, is one sport where 
coaches are honest in their opinions. This in contrast to the attitudes of base- 
ball and boxing managers whose pose invariably is one of extreme optimism. 
Predictions based on best lines, defenses, running power, passing attacks, 
etc., can be invalidated by one freak intercepted pass, or one inspiring run. 
Realizing the uncertainty of the game, coaches are willing to admit that tho 
other team stands a chance. And back to the telephone, Dooley's weekly bill 
averages $100, which reminds us of one of our more romantic fraternity 
brothers during undergraduate days whose long distance calls and resulting 
phone bills earned him the nickname, "A. T. & T."

Shakespeare Players 

Perform Commendably 

Beware the Jabberwock, my son, 
and also the English langwidge in 
the lets and gins whereof thou art not 
the first to btumble. Few are called, 
but many have fallen, among them, 
Hizzoner, the good Doktor Clyde A. 
Lynch, commonly known as the Presi- 
dent of Lebanon Valley College situ- 
ated in the foot-hills of the beatifui 
Blue-Ridge Mountains. . . 

Hizzoner, the good &c, according 
to our Conserve correspondent, was 
among those who attended a recent 
performance of The Merchant of Ven- 
ice. The point we are getting at here, 
by more or less direct methods, is 
that, during one of the entr'actes, he 
turned around and whispered in hL 
best official whisper to some one, "Just 
between you and I, English was pret- 
ty bad in Shakespeare's day, eh?" 

It do beat all. 


Some of our best serial stories will 
have to be left unfinished because ot 
the ill-timed intervention of the cen- 
sors. Things are not so bad, however, 
that we shall be unable to give the 
public the rest of that Leffable yarn, 
the Gals Who Was Leff. That much, 
at least, is leff to us. 

One of them — never ask us which— 
recently consumed at one sitting a to- 
tal of one-half pounds of cheese 
(American Swiss, we had thought). 
We do not print this item because ot 
a naive belief that it constitutes a 
record for the eating of cheese at one 
sitting. No doubt Miss Leff has often 
done better. 

What does move us, however, is her 
subsequent inquiring of Miss Wood 
why she — Miss Leff — should have a 
stomache ache. That one stumped us. 
All we could do was leff and leff. 

Moral: you should never leff at 


Another item which has passed the 
official board of hemming and hawing 
is the one concerning a person by the 
name of "Cotton" deHuff, who, rumor 
has it, is one of the inhabitants 01 
South Hall. Miss deHuff is the kind 
of person who does not like draughts 
in her room. She is also a man — or 
perhaps a woman of action. No pul- 
ing half-way measures with her — no- 
siree; she just gets right up and stops 
those draughts — even if she has to 
hang all the towels in her bureau over 
the window. 

Who said four walls don't make a 
cage? (Prizes awarded to persons do- 
ing it with three.) 


There is also something to the an- 
cient definition of notes as being 
something which passes from the 
note-book of the prof to the note- 
book of the student without going 
through the minds of either. If Miss 
deHuff is a case in point, the adage 
is at least half true. We report a late 
conversation in which La deH. an- 
swers the questions. 

q. Have you studied for your chem 
test yet? 

a. Yes. 

q. Then you know what a mole- 
cule is? 

a. A molecule? Did we have that 
in chem? 

q. Sure — it was in the last lecture 
a. Was it? Oh, then I know it! 
q. Howcome? 

a. Well, if it was in the lecture, I 
have it in my notes, and if I have it 
in my notes, I know what it is. 

A rose is a hose, is a nose. 

A hitch-hiker must learn to put up 
with all sorts and conditions of men, 
says Dick Weagley, who ought to 
know after having practically walked 
home from the last one. Sorry, boys, 
that's as close as we can come to it. 
After all, this building is insured.

ments the utterances of a fool. How- 
ever, we have always said what we 
thought, and Shakespeare or no, we 
shall not depart from policy, even 
though what we think is as will be 
seen below. 

Last spring the Hedgerow Playeis 
put forth here a production of Twelfth 
Night, which was impressively her- 
alded, warmly applauded, and rotten- 
ly staged. Mr. Harry Shepard, as Sir 
Toby Belch, and his supporting cut- 
ups in the persons of Sir Andrew 
Ague-cheek, and the wench Maria, 
whose names escape us at the mo- 
ment, which is one when we happen 
to be locked away from our records, 
gave brilliant, scintillant interpreta- 
tions of their parts while the rest of 
the cast read their lines like a group 
of phonographs which were turning 
too fast. Further than that, the thes- 
pian ability sine qua non of creating 
and sustaining a characterization was 
so totally lacking that we have sus- 
pected Mr. Jasper Deeter's morals, il 
not his histrionics ever since. For 
once, at least, his talented amateurs 
turned out to be neither talented, nor, 
if one considers their whirlwind style 
of dramatics, amateurs in the true 
sense of the word. 

In spite of this fact, people are 
still talking in eulogistic terms of 
the really almost totally none-existent 
merits of their production. 

On the other hand, the perform- 
ances presented by Mr. Hendrickson's 
company last Thursday had to over- 
come a prevailing opinion that a 
strolling troupe could not possibly be 
a good troupe, besides a number of 
other difficulties that count heavily 
against traveling shows. Neverthe- 
less, whatever the Philistines may 
think about it, these people turned in 
a performance that was, on the whole, 
so well done as to surprise, being so 
far from Broadway. 

Mr. Hendrickson's Shylock was in 
the Booth tradition, and well done at 
that. It is one of the strange para- 
doxes of Shakespearian costuming 
that, in spite of the fact that it has 
been a number of years now since we 
saw a comedy Shylock, he still contin- 
ues to appear in the red beard and 
wig which he wore when he was the 
laughing stock of the Elizabethan 
rabble, although, to our way of think- 
ing, the modern sympathetic inter- 
pretation augurs for silver threads 
among the henna. However, that's 
as may be — Mr. Hendrickson is a 
thoroughly competent actor, and he 
gives Shylock all that is required to 
make that Semitic gentleman give 
him the reputation of a ripping good 

His supporting men, Mr. Whitefield 
as Bassanio, the juvenile, Mr. Burke 
as Antonio, Mr. England as Gobbo, 
and the others — or • more properly 
speaking other — gave performances of 
a quiet competence. Each was distinct 
from the others, in spite of frequent 
doubling, and each sustained his 
uniqueness without detracting from 
that of the others — an excellent thing 
in a supporting player. 

And now we come to the ladies, 
who, it is hoped, will pardon a lack of 
gallantry in us. This because we must 
caddishly flail Miss Bruce's somewhat 
listless Portia. It seems to us that 
we once saw her do a bang-up Lady 
Macbeth, and it also seems that she 
is not lacking in the ability to broach 
the innuendo, which is a contradictory 
skill essential to a comedienne. How- 
ever, we frankly fa:i to understand 
how an actress of her experience and 
talents should fail to realize the ex- 
cellent possibilities of the Portia role, 
or how, in spite of her obvious sophis- 
tication, any young lady whatever 
could be £o disinterested in her atti- 
tude toward matters that one pre- 

sumes to be of great moment to her. 
Her interpretation reminds us, in its 
peculiar unfortunateness, of the yet 
more unfortunate Englishman who. 
awakened in his hotel by a serving 
man who wished to inform him of 
an earth-quake just then shaking the 
building, heard the story with typical 
English equinamity and replied, "How 
annoying! This will make an end of 
golf for the week!" 

Miss Marshall as Nerissa, and Miss 
Sheldon as Jessica were both in the 
way of doing right well by them- 
selves. Neither had roles of too de- 
manding a character, and wisely 
seemed to accept their fate and make 
the be^t of matters. It is an inter- 
esting speculation to wonder how ei- 
ther of them would do in the lead, 
and one not unpleasant at all. Perhaps 
we shall see. 

On the whole, therefore, we should 
like to go on record as holding a de- 
finite brief for Mr. Hendrickson's 
hard-working, competent little troupe. 
Apparently, he has no high-falutin' 
notions about Art or Theory, but he 
knows how to put on a show that will 
please the customer:, which is, after 
all, the consideration of primary im- 
portance if actors are to continue eat- 
ing, — a desideratum which comes 
nearer than one might think to being 
abolished betimes in the theatre, if 
our own meager professional experi- 
ence is typical. 

His productions realize their limi- 
tations, and with that courageous Sto- 
icism which is the stamp of the 
trouper, make the best of them. We 
like that best. It is of the hardy flame, 
alas, burned low these days in which 
the great actors of the past have been 
roasted to a proper turn that gave 
them the ability to act like blazes un- 
der conditions that were frequently 
intolerable, especially in comparison 
with the namby-pamby methods by 
which the feeble talents of M-G-M's 
muling minions are nursed to a je- 
june and feeble maturity that merci- 
fully passes into a quick decline. This 
might lead one to think that good 
acting in America disappeared when 
the pioneer passed. If so, Mr. Hen- 
drickson is the last of a vanishing 
race. However, we hope otherwise. 

To be a critic out here in the prov- 
inces is at once a burden and a bless- 
ing, for, while one is deprived of the 
privilege of seeing all the best shows 
as soon as they are produced, he is 
also relieved of the necessity of 
watching, or sleeping through the nu- 
merous turkeys which strut their ap- 
propriately brief hour upon the Go- 
tham stages. At the same time, in 
town, a critic has perforce to be a 
severe sort of fellow who eats chil- 
dren, breathes fire, and knows at least 
four synonyms for lousy in every lan- 
guage living dead, or moribund be- 
cause there, if a show is only fair, he 
needs must sting it to death with his 
epigrams and cremate it with the 
blowtorch of critical jibes that has al- 
ways been an indispensable to the re- 
viewer's art. Where there is every 
resource upon which to draw to pro- 
duce a show that is passing good, 
there can be no excu. e for even the 
most insigficant of human frailties. 

Out here, however, where theatres 
are for the most part, glorified hen- 
roosts, the wonder is that there are 
any good shows at all, considering the 
almost insurmountable difficulties of 
staging one. 

Therefore, let not our friends fresh 
from the wonders of revolving stages, 
and dressing rooms with running wa 
ter say sneeringly that we are losing 
our grip when we launch a series of 
loud huzzahs for Mr. Hendrickson's 
very good, if somewhat ellipsiated 
version of Hamlet, Prince of Den 

In the full-cast version, there are 
some thirty persons, if memory serves 
correctly. Yet without cutting too 
ruthlessly for any save the few re- 
maining scholars in this unscholarly 
world, Mr. Hendrickson manages to 

make quite a go of things with ten 
persons. If we wanted to be nasty 
we could make cracks about doing 
Shakespeare in a tab version, but since 
the lacunae to which we have some- 
what vaguely referred only occurred 
to us afterwards, we shall excuse 

We can not help saying, however, 
that Miss Elaine Sheldon could have 
played Ophelia to much better advan- 
tage than Miss Bruce, who is certain- 
ly the most substantial Ophelia we 
have seen, and perhaps will ever see. 
We make this recommendation on the 
basis of the soliloquy which ends, in 
case anyone has forgotten, thus: 

"The fair Ophelia. — Nymph, in thy 

Be all my sins remembered." 

The italics are our own. Aside from 
this matter and the fact that once, 
but only once we caught the gloomy 
Dane throwing her lines to Miss Mar- 
shall, though, let it be said that the 
Bruce-Hendrickson Players give as 
good a Hamlet as it is possible to give 
with the conditions under which they 
work. And that is considerably bet- 
ter than one might expect. It might 
not satisfy Broadway, but it satisfies 
the human craving for good enter- 
taining drama, and that, after all, is 
slightly more universal than the big 
White Street. 

Mr. Hendrickson works hard to 
achieve his ends, but he works sin- 
cerely and he does achieve them. 
Therefore, he receives our praise, we 
think, deservedly.

Noted Educator Conveys Per- 
sonal Reminiscences o f 
Great Hoosier Poet 

On Wednesday morning, November 
17, chapel attendants were privileged 
to hear Dr. Lee Driver, formerly of 
Pennsylvania's Department of Public 
Instruction. Dr. Driver lectured upon 
the life and work of James Whitcomb 
Reilly, with whom he held a personal 

The relationship of Dr. Driver with 
the Hoosier poet was a close one, since 
the farms of their grandfathers ad- 
joined in Randolph County, Indiana 
As a result, Dr. Driver's speech was 
enriched by many first-hand anecdotes 
from the life of Reilly. 

The speaker, to begin with, indicat- 
ed Reilly as the typical Hoosier. The 
joint product of Dutch and English 
parentage and a migrant from the 
East, the poet represented a Western 
pioneer type which was, within the 
lifetime of Dr. Driver, to be found in 
the comparatively youthful state of 

From this lineage of mingled 
strains, Reilly derived a keen poetic 
sense. He was able to discern poetry 
even in the most commonplace objects 
and activities. From his mother, Bet- 
ty Marine, especially, he inherited the 
tendency to call a butterfly a "flying 
flower" and a landscape "God's paint- 

And yet from other elements in 
his ancestry, the Hoosier poet took a 
practical turn, which served to set in 
contrast his poetic gift, and give to 
his character what seem to be contra- 

He was, for example, Dr. Driver

The series of concerts sponsored by 
the Lebanon Community Concert As- 
sociation will be inaugurated Thurs- 
day, November 18, in the presenta- 
tion of the Ionian Singers, a male 
quartet of notable reputation. All of 
the Lebanon concerts will be held in 
the Lebanon High School Auditorium. 

The Ionian Singers, an all-Ameri- 
can ensemble, organized a number of 
years ago with the purpose of bring- 
ing to the public the best of male- 
voice music from the days of Pales- 
trina to our own. In their extensive 
research they have brought to light 
masterpieces for quartets that were 
nearly forgotten, inasmuch as male 
singing groups concentrate for the 
most part on simple ballads and popu- 
lar tunes. 

Each of the singers who compose 
the quartet is an accomplished solo- 
ist, but they have mastered the diffi- 
cult task of blending their voices into

Recruits Hold Services 
at Hopeland and Lititz 

On Thursday evening, November 
11, Dr. and Mrs. Wilt entertained the 
Life Work Recruits at their home. 
An enjoyable evening was spent play- 
ing parlor games and partaking of the 
delicious refreshments. The presence 
of Mrs. Lynch was greatly appreciated 
by the Recruits. 

Two church services were conducted 
by the organization on Sunday eve- 
ning, November 14. 

The first deputation's program was 
held at the Hopeland United Brethren 
Church. Rev. Grant Umberger, pastor, 
Martha Jane Koontz served as chair- 
man while Jane Ehrart was in charge 
of the devotions. An extensive musi- 
cal program was presented by mem- 
bers of the Conservatory. Dorothy 
Zeiters played a cello solo, and Den- 
nis Geesey rendered a trombone solo. 
The audience was well pleased with a 
flute solo by Catherine Coleman. A 
trio composed of Esther Wise, Grace 
Guyer, and Margaret Boyd, as well 
as a male quartet consisting of Ar- 
thur Jordan, William Brensinger, Den- 
nis Geesey, and Edwin Creeger added

Sophs to Battle Frosh

That battle of battles, filled with 
good plays, bad plays, comedy, and 
even the most pathetic sort of tragedy 
is almost upon us. In fact, this an- 
nual Sophomore-Freshmen football 
game will be staged at the Athletic 
Field next Tuesday afternoon at ap- 
proximately three o'clock. Last year 
the present Sophomore team won a 7- 
6 victory over the class of '39. This

Band Sponsors Dance 

Saturday night the Girls' Band 
will sponsor a dance in the Ann- 
ville High School Gymnasium. Tur- 
key-trotting is scheduled to begin 
at eight o'clock to the rhythm of 
Roy Lloyd and his orchestra. Ad- 
mission will be $1.00 per couple. 
As the last dance before the 
Thanksgiving vacation it is a wel- 
comed get-together before the cus- 
tomary dispersion. 

One of the interesting features 
of the dance will be a floor show, 
which is being planned by the en- 
tertainment committee. This pro- 
mises to be something new and dif- 
ferent, and ought to be worth the 
price of admission alone. 

For those who would not be in- 
terested in a dance for the fun of 
the thing, but who might be sway- 
ed by an ulterior or exterior mo- 
tive, attendance at the dance will 
be boosting a worthy cause. The 
proceeds from the dance will be 
added to the fund with which the 
girls' band hopes, in the not too 
distant future, to purchase needed 

Riffle Leads Red and White 
to 16*0 Triumph Over L.V.C. 


Valleyites Hold Rivals in Check in First Half; Lion's Power 
Asserts Itself Strongly after Intermission; Rettinger Kicks 
Field Goal 

Basic Plans Announced 
For Clio Anniversary 

The Lions' goal remained uncrossed after the Blue and White had unsuc- 
cessfully invaded the Albright Stadium at Reading last Saturday. With the 
weather conditions considerably slowing up the game many Lebanon Valley 
fans saw the Red and White open up in the second half to blank the Blue 
and White by a 16-0 score. This was the third straight victory over Lebanon 
Valley for the Lions and their sixth straight of the current season. Only one 
game, that with Muhlenberg on Thanksgiving Day, remains on the 1937 

Even though our lads put up a stubborn resistance during the entire 
game, it was quite evident that many replacements which were sent in by 
Coach Bill Dietz greatly strengthened the Albright lineup from time to time 
so that our lads were battling against superior man power. THiis in a large 

measure accounts for the second half 
rally of the Lions. 

The L. V. C. climax came in the 
second period when a field goal, at- 
tempted by Tony Rozman, sailed true 
but lacked the necessary momentum 
to carry it over the crossbar. Much 
credit must be given to the Lions' left 
halfback, Dick Riffle, as a ball carrier 
and as a punter, for Lebanon Valley 
lost much yardage on the exchange 
of punts. In the second period Ret- 
tinger kicked a field goal for the Li- 
ons for the only score of the half. 
However, the third period netted them 
two touchdowns and an extra point. 

Early in the first quarter Lebanon 
Valley was put in a hole when Riffle 
kicked to the seven yard line where 
it was downed by Knox. Tony Roz- 
man then broke loose for 18 yards 
and alternated with Ed Kress in tear- 
ing down the Lions' defense to carry 
the ball to the 41 yard stripe. Here 
the Blue and White attack was halted 
and Kress booted to Troisi who was 
downed by Sponaugle on the Lions' 
24. On the next play Aszman's fum-

Tuesday noon the Freshman Y.W.C. 
A. Cabinet held a meeting in parlor 
at North Hall. As the two former elec-

had resulted in a tie for presidency, 
this function was delegated to the 
Senior Cabinet. Martha Jane Koontz 
was finally elected to that office. 
Other officers of that society are 
Feme Poet, vice president and Mar-

man members have been placed in 
charge of the publicity end of this 
affair. It is to be not only for the 
students of Lebanon Valley College, 
but for all the "Annvillites" as well. 
The Senior cabinet plans to sell novel-

No. 14 


Several weeks ago an item appeared in the Muhlenberg Weekly, 
official student publication of the Allentown school, which came 
to our attention rather forcibly. There appears therein a column 
of sports commentary which combines superficiality of thought 
with incorrectness of information to produce an extremely read- 
able feature. On this particular occasion, namely, the aftermath 
of the Muhlenberg-Lebanon Valley football game, some individual, 
presumably the Sports Editor of the WEEKLY, went to some 
length to comment upon the shortcomings of the Annville boys. 
We do not quote the exact language as we do not intend to abe. 
the propagation of trash of that stamp, but suffice it to say that 
the writer spoke of the Annville team in a manner that was 
positively insulting. 

We admit that our boys played a poor brand of football on tha^ 
day. But it was not "dirty football." From all observations they 
were not guilty of unsportsmanlike conduct. Nor did our rooters 
conduct themselves in an offensive manner, or violate the rules 
of common courtesy. On the whole we believe the aforementioned 
outburst was a bit unfounded. 

Two weeks ago an efficient Drexel eleven traveled to Allentown 
and administered a clean-cut 6-0 defeat to an overconfident 
Muhlenberg team. We gather that the folks down Allentown way 
didn't take their medicine with such good grace. "Their conduct 
was hardly that of college men " relates the Drexel TRIANGLE, 
"the playing of their team could not be called clean football. The 
rival spectators with whom . . . (our) rooters were forced to sit 
were anything but courteous — their vulgar epithets in reference 
to our team and school filled the air through the duration of the 
game." Moreover it is recorded that on one occasion, a Mule 
player deliberately kicked a Drexel back in the head while the 
latter lay on the ground after the completion of a play. 

The experience of the Drexel team and student body illustrates 
just what consideration any rivals can expect from the Allentown 
school. Therefore we can attach little significance to any pro- 
nouncements emanating therefrom, especially when they are 
expressed in the same offensive manner. Any clear-thinking 
person can evaluate the true worth of such statements.

Reilly, born in 1849, spent practic- 
ally the whole of his life as a citizen 
of the state of Indiana. Here it was, 
that, in the arc formed by a turn in 
the Pennsylvania Railroad, the young 
rimester, with his play fellows, would 
go for a dip in the 01' Surimmin' Hole, 
which poem Dr. Driver recited. 

It was in this region of pioneer 
country that Reilly penned his first 
contributions to the Indiana Journal 
under the soubriquet of Johnson A. 
Boone. On receipt of his OV Swim- 
min' Hole, the editor of this publica- 
tion wrote a letter of praise to the 
young poet and received in return the 
result of this inspiration, To a Dis- 
couraged Farmer. 

Dr. Driver suggested that the whole 
of Reilly's life and letters was affect- 
ed appreciably by his love for Kate 
Meyers. His engagement to her was 
broken off by the girl because of the 
poet's weakness for drink, which she 
^new would imperil their home and 
happiness. Under the poignant stim- 
ulus of this affection, Reilly wrote 
tender lyrics in the Hoosier dialect. 

In this dialect, in fact, all of Reil- 
ly's poems were penned. The speaker 
asserted that there is no stigma at- 
tached to using dialect as dialect, 
since only through this medium can 
we frequently appreciate a peculiar 
locality with its inhabitants. 

The last time Dr. Driver heard 
Reilly speak was at the Indiana State 
Teachers' Assembly. On this occasion 
the latter introduced Henry van Dyke 
Van Dyke read, in response, a char- 
acterization of, and a tribute to Reilly, 
with which Dr. Driver concluded his 

What They Say 

Editors Note : — The following items 
were received by Prof. Stokes as 
answers in the Economic Geography 


Relation of altitude and temperature. — 
Altitude is the height in the air, the 
space above us and temperature is the 
climate how hot or cool it is. The re- 
lation between these two is that this 
takes place in the air above us. 

The height of the sky and temperature 
is how warm or cold it is on the earth. 
If the sky is low the temperature is not 
favorable and if the altitude is high the 
temperature is favorable according to 
what season it is. 


Relation of altitude and pressure. — 
The less heat in the air the less presure 
their is on the earth. When it is hot 
the earth expands, making the pressure 
of the earth greater. 

At a high altitude the pressure be- 
comes great due to the thinness of the 


Dew. — Dew is almost always in the 
morning when the weather is damp and 
the clouds are low and the moisture 
settles on whatever it comes in contact 
with. Dew is formed by the earth being 
cool and the plants give off moisture.

There seems to be more involved in 
Wig and Buckle play rehearsals than 
meets the eye. Believe it if you care 
to, but Vernon Rodgers is getting a 
house cleaning in American History 
via a jig saw puzzle upon which he 
works so arduously. Then in the way 
of preparing for life, Betty Bender 
takes to knitting. Dot Kreamer to 
sewing and embroidery, and most nov- 
el of all, Laurene Dreas to taking 
time out to brush up on the care of

As to material innovations, Paul 
Horn has undertaken the construction 
of a NEW fireplace! Whether you'll 
do likewise or not, we wake up nights 
applauding in our sleep. We remem- 
ber what happened to the last new 
fireplace, so keep your fingers crossed. 

It's in the wind that Doyle Sumner, 
the imported talent from Africa, is 
by no means as serious as we thought. 
Watch him for a bit of that old 
Shakespearean slapstick — that is, 
those of us who can be amused, for 
of course not all of us can appreciate 
something so far above the heads of 
some who amke up the vast L. V. au-

And, speaking of plays, it's inter- 
esting to watch the growth of the 
gossipy "Women Have Their Way,"

Sophs to Battle Frosh 

in Football Contest 

(Continued from page 1) 

ed by the talkative Bob Brown, Stan 
Bulota assisting. 

Press statements made by the 
coaches are: "We'll beat them by at 
least two touchdowns" — Walk. "We'll 
have the best coached team on the 
field. They may all laugh at us when 
they first see us, but they will all ad- 
mire us when we leave the field."— 

Coach Walk is blessed with an all 
veteran team; in fact, it is virtually 
the same outfit that won last fall. The 
line is expected to average 172 pounds 
and the backfield 143. The center of 
the line consisting of George Munday, 
center, and John Lynch and John 
Shaeffer, guards, should be a fine nu- 
cleus about which to build a power at- 
tack. The rest of the line will probab- 
ly be Maury and Bender, tackles, and 
Rice and Kauffman at end. The quar- 
terbacking will undoubtedly be done 
by that mighty atom, Danny Seiver- 
ling. Assisting him in the backfield 
will be Jack Moller, Bob Boran, and 
Bob Grimm. The team will rely main- 
ly on a power attack because of their 
superior poundage. 

Coach Brown has a much more dif- 
ficult task before him because his boys 
are playing their first game together 
and have had less experience than 
their rivals. Three of his linemen, 
Haverstick, Reeser, tackles, and Hab- 
byshaw, an end, have some experience. 
The last named played for Boyd Spo- 
naugle, '36, at Hummelstown High- 
The coach himself does not know the 
remainder of the line personnel. In 
the backfield his experienced men are 
Conley, Bell, and Hackman, all of 
whom will probably start. After a 
week's practice Coach Brown should 
have his squad well rounded out. B e 
expects to use a flashy, razzle-da^' e 
attack to baffle the opponents. 

In last year's memorable battle tne 
Class of '39 scored in the second qua^ 
ter on a successful pass, Raezer ^ 
Umberger. The extra point try ^

Juniata Footballers 
to be Powerful Foe 


yjjne Game Winning Streak 
Over Indians to be Risked 
by Valleyites 

fhe curtain will be rung down on 
1937 gridiron season this weekend 
w hen the Juniata Indians raid Ann- 
v jjle. This band of Indians is prob- 
ably the most foi'midable ever to come 
oU t of the Huntingdon mountains, so 
Lebanon Valley's record of nine 
straight victories over them is in 
.gjious danger of being brought to an 
j n glorious conclusion. 

Coach Swartz, a graduate of Leba- 
non Valley, and Juniata gridiron tutor 
since 1930, has gradually been raising 
jjie calibre of his teams until his out- 
fits now have reached the point where 
they are held in high regard by all 
opponents. Prior to his appointment 
to the Huntingdon post he was a 
pitcher for the Reading Keystones of 
the International League, head coach 
a t Connecticut State, and Dickinson 
Seminary of Williamsport. 

The Juniata team has played seven 
games to date, winning five and losing 
two. They have defeated Washington 
College 6-0, Hartwick College 6-0, 
Grove City College 13-6, Moravian 
College 25-0, and Bridgewater College 
26-0. The defeats have been admin- 
istered by Drexel Tech 12-0 and Ran- 
dolph-Macon 25-13. A recapitulation 
shows that the Indians have amassed 
a total of 89 points while holding their 
opposition to 43 tallies. 

The Juniata backfield averages only 
165 pounds but it makes up for this 
lack of poundage by being exception- 
ally fleet of foot. The two main 
ground gainers are Corbin, fullback, 
and Jenkins, halfback, with the latter 
also doing most of the passing. Coach 
Swartz is blessed with a great block- 
er in the person of Whitey Weaver, a 
halfback, the man who has paved the 
way for most of the gains registered 
by his teammates. The punter and 
signal-caller is 156 pound Phil Hahn. 
The line is built around two 200-pound 
tackles, Dick Stratton, and Tom Gar- 

The Flying Dutchmen came out of 
the gruelling Albright battle in fair 
shape. The players were given a 
deserved rest on Monday, but prepar- 
ation for this last game of the season 
?ot under way on Tuesday. Everybody 
tot Frank Rozman is expected to be 
ready for the Juniata battle. The 
w hole team is intent upon winding 
U P the schedule with a victory to in 
some measure atone for the defeat ad- 
ministered by Albright. The boys have 
SWen their best all season but the> 
tove been called upon to face a ter- 
rif ic schedule for the size of the 
school and could hardly be expected 
to win any more games than they

16-0 Triumph over L. V. C.

Moravian Hockey Team 
Plays Here Saturday 

On Saturday, November 20 at 10:30 
Lebanon Valley's hockey team will 
bring its season to a close in a game 
with its old rival Moravian College. 
As both teams are strong and in 
good condition an exciting and hard 
fought game is expected. This is the 
last game of the season and as it is 
being played on the home field it is 
hoped that many spectators will be 
present to cheer the Blue and White 
on to victory. 

During the past week several intra- 
mural games have been played be- 
tween the upperclassmen and the 
Soph-Frosh hockey squad mainly to 
give the sophmores and freshmen 
more practice in preparation for their 
tilts with teams from other schools. 
Although many of the freshmen have 
never played hockey before coming to 
L. V. C. some quite promising players 
have been discovered so that the ex- 
perience gained through these prac- 
tice games should develop a well 
rounded Soph-Frosh squad. 

On Monday, Nov. 15 the underclass 
team met the Linden Hall hockey 
team on the L. V. field. 

The home team offered a good 
fight but went down to a 5-0 defeat 
before the faster playing shown by 
the Linden Hall group. A large num- 
ber of hockey enthusiasts were pres- 
ent at the game. 

The Soph-Frosh team will go to Lit- 
itz on Friday, Nov. 19 where they 
will play Linden Hall again. The in- 
tramural games will be continued 
next week.

and Rozman tried to penetrate the 
Red and White line, but without much 

The ball was now in good position 
for a field goal and after considerable 
preparation it was booted and sailed 
true enough, but lacked the necessary 
momentum to carry it across the bar. 
The Lions took the ball on their 20 
and with a Riffle boot and a break 
moved it up to the Blue and White 24. 
Bonner blocked one of Kress' punts, 
but Kress recovered on the ten yard 
line. Finally Kress got his boot away 
to the 42 where Troisi ran it back tc. 
the 21. After the Reading boys ad- 
vanced the pigskin to the 15 Coach 
Dietz put Rettinger in to kick a field 
goal, the only score of the first half. 

After the intermission a new spirit 
prevailed over the Albright lineup. 
An exchange of kicks gave the home- 
sters the ball on their own 46. Troisi, 
Aszman, and Riffle alternated in driv- 
ing deep into Lebanon Valley terri- 
tory. Then on a trick lateral, Riffle 
to Soja, the Lions reached the one- 
yard stripe. Riffle then plunged 
through for the touchdown and the 
extra point was booted by Rettinger 
to make the score 10-0. 

Soon thereafter Riffle intercepted a 
pass and ran it to the Blue and White 
35 yard stripe. On the next play Soja 
moved up to 24. The Blue and White 
defense then stiffened and held for 
downs. Kress was again forced to 
punt and the Lions started another 
offensive drive. On a run by Soja and 
a pass from Delorenzo to Knox the 
ball was brought to the Lebanon Val- 
ley 27. Aszman tossed a lateral to 
Riffle who tore through for his sec- 
ond touchdown. The try for the extra 
failed and the score remained 16-0. 

The Collegiate Review 

(By Associated Collegiate Press) 

There is a no-smoking rule at Ohio State University and this is the note 
the janitor put on the blackboard of the Commerce building. 

"I am going to tell the President on anybody I catch smoking in 
this room. This means you. I am not fooling. I'm good and mad."

After fifty-one years, a graduate of Massachusetts Institute of Technol- 
ogy in 1886, has returned to the institute to take a course in spectroscopy, 
which is now his hobby. 

A professor at Carnegie Institute of Technology in measuring the deci- 
bels of sound in the men's dormitory found that between 5 p. m. and 12 mid- 
night, the average noise level was 112.1 decibels, or "equivalent to that given 
by two riveting machines or a sustained roll of thunder." 

Adoption of movies to supplement but not replace the present system of 
teaching is being seriously considered at Michigan State College. 

A sociologist at Indiana University hired "a well known expert in theft" 
by the week to tell hjm about the "trade." Then he compiled a lexicon of terms 
in underworld jargon for the several branches of thievery. 

An electric eye detects late-comers to physics classes at St. Thomas Col- 
lege. Even while the professor's back is turned, a person can't slip in un- 
detected, for he must cross the light beam and when he does, a gong clangs. 

A University of Minnesota freshman has had to say "Ugh" 97,000 times 
in the last few weeks. That one word is his entire speaking part in a play. 

University of Chicago students voted on whether they wanted their 
school to remain in inter-collegiate athletics and the Big Ten Conference. 
Sixty-three per cent of those who voted were in favor of retention of the 
present athletic program. 

A "faculty of presidents" this year dispenses knowledge to St. Olaf Col- 
lege students. Listed on the staff are eight educators who have served as 
presidents of other institutions. 

Statistics at the University of Wisconsin extension division show that 
persons from 40 to 49 years of age are better students than youths of 15 to 
19. The older students received 24 A's and three D's in college courses, com- 
pared to 17 A's and 12 D's for the younger group.

Boycotting Japan is serious business with coeds of the school of educa- 
tion of New York University. Twenty of them decided last week to wear- 
sheer wool hose instead of silk stockings. 

The boys looked upon them and found them good. The girls found them 
good — and also cheap. 

One of the organizers, when asked whether the boycott would include 
underclothes, looked puzzled. 

"What undergarments?" 

"Well, er — step-ins and such things?" 

"My dear," said she, "we don't wear such things. Everything else that 
we wear, pajamas, slips, negligees, will be cotton or wool from now on."

The K 



By Archie, the Anarchist 

He Who Laughs Last Department: 
Last week we gave vent to a genteel 
ha-ha or so at the expense of Dr. 
Lynch whom we thought we had 
caught saying "between you and I." 
The scene was at the performance of 
The Merchant of Venice, if you re- 

It seems, however, that we made a 
slight error in crediting this classic 
utterance to the good doctor, because 
it was really said by one Bill Shake- 
speare — in fact had been repeated on 
the stage ever so few minutes before 
we heard it proceeding from Dr. 

Fools, it seems, do rush in. 

To bring you this choice cut of Eng- 
lish as she is spoke, Archy departs 
for once from his bullet-proof policy 
of never making references to him- 
self. You may find it in the goodness 
of your hearts, however, to forgive 
him just this once, because, in case 
you don't know it, he has decided to 
decamp. We are sorry to see him go. 

We are sorry, we repeat, because 
he was by far the most popular col- 
umn we ever wrote — and we've writ- 
ten under some half dozen odd titles 
during our connection with La Vie. 
What the public wanted, it seemed, 
was gossip. "0. K.," said Archy, 
"we'll give 'em gossip." And he did. 
There will probably be old left-over 
ears sticking out of the walls for years 
to come, unless some of his victims 
take them home for souvenirs. You 
may have 'em if you want 'em — we're 


Not that we won't be back — no, 
you're not getting off that easy, but 
as Archy, at least, we are done. Watch 
for us in our high-hat and false whis- 
kers next week. And try to get a 
chirp out of us about who's that way 
over whom. Just try, but don't try 
too hard, because there's no sense in 
wasting so much energy. From now 
on we are definitely high-brow. 


Let us reiterate; we aren't fired — 
we've just quit. We've quit because 
we always wanted to write book re 
views, and what did they give us? The 
dirt department. Well, we're tired oi 
being dirty, see? We're cleaning up. 

We're also tired of serving as an 
outlet for campus publicity hounds, 
and a journalistic back-fence. Back 
fences are considered to be in bad 
taste anyway, but you liked having 
the old thing around so well, we didn't 
quite have the heart to tear it down. 
However, too many people were get- 
ting the idea that we were the bozo 
who wanted it up. And the only thing 
we could do to prove the contrary was 
to tear it down. From now on, if our 
chickens get in your garden, we're 
sorry, but you'll have to talk to the 
chickens, for we're going to be busy 
working on our new column which 
will require more concentration than 
this one did because we're no longer 
catering to the moron trade. 

We're telling you all this because 
it's been on our mind for some time, 
and also because we want you to know 
that, if we don't seem to see you any- 
more when you're taking the lids off 
the man-holes or swiping the car of 
Charlie, the cop, it's not because we're 
getting myopic with old age. It's just 
that we're covering a different beat. 
Your patronage appreciated at our 
new address. Oh yes, didn't you know? 
Tht car job was covered by four of 
our representatives. Too bad, poor 
fellows — they'll have to go into in- 
surance or something.

If Life were a cup, I would drink it

Of peace, and happiness,

Drinking deep, to taste at once

From an eternity of years.

I'll make a wreath of lovers' conver- 
sations — 

All they have said, or evermore may 

Their golden words, in silver contem- 

Spelling "forever" out of each "to- 

Their treasure-phrases, rich in secret 

To love disclosed, unlocked without a 

The pregnant pauses, full of "words 

The silent music of affinity. 
Out of all these I'll fashion a fair 


Twining it with a sunny smile or two 
I'll make a wreath of lovers' conver- 

And, with a kiss, I'll send it, dear, to 


The shades of pinks and blues are 

Into darker shades of night, 
Grasses in fields are gently bending 

Gracefully in sheer delight, 
Fireflies everywhere are sending 

Forth beautiful sparks of light. 

Swiftly the dark water is flowing 
Around the bend of the stream, 

Softly the cool night wind is blowing 
Us into a thoughtful mien, 

Light is fainter and fainter growing 
And we are lost in a dream. 

A tiny spark, a speck of light, 
Shineth forth into the night, 

It's the first star. 
Then larger diamonds soon appear, 
Also pearls and crystals clear 

Shine from afar. 

There is naught in song or story 
That compares with the glory 

Which the nights hold. 
The splendor of the milky way, 
The stars decked in bright array 

To us unfold. 

To buy the wealth these jewels hold 
You do not need heaps of gold 

And silver bright. 
For to the wide world they are free, 
God gave them for you and me 
Jewels of night. 

Ionian Singers in 

Community Concert 

(Continued from page 1) 

a well-balanced tonal ensemble which, 
as a critic wrote after their New York 
recital, has "a sound, organ-like tone, 
extensive range, and purity as to 

An unusual feature of the Ionians 
is that they sing more than half their 
program a cappella. They have per- 
fected this difficult art and in so do- 
ing bring to their audiences the "for- 
bidding classics" rather than the bal- 
lads male quartets are expected to 
render. This ensemble has appeared 
throughout the country on the concert 
stage and on the radio, being received 
favorably everywhere. 

The quartet is composed of Harold 
Dearborn, first tenor; Albert Barber, 
second tenor; Baldwin Allan- Allen, 
baritone; and Hildreth Martin, basso. 
Their singing careers were started in 
the Yale Glee Club and in the Juillard 
School of Music. 

The program to be presented is a 
change from the usual concert reper- 
toire. It is a program of high music- 
al worth, intimate appeal, and great 
variety. Divided into six parts, the 
program includes, in addition to the 
singers, a group of four piano com- 
positions to be played by the assisting 
pianist, Elvin Schmitt. The Ionians 
occupy the first, second, and fifth 
parts of the concert unaccompanied, 
while in the third and sixth parts 
they will be accompanied by Mr. 
Schmitt on the piano. Mr. Schmitt 
will render his pieces following the 
intermission occurring midway in the 
program. Besides what are known as 
classical numbers, the program in- 
cludes folksongs of Europe and Amer- 

The program is as follows: Love, 
Falconers, Love! Bennett; An Even- 
ing's Pastorale, Shaw; Smuggler's 
Song (Hebridean), Bantock; Gently 
Johnny (English), Bingham; The 
Hundred Pipers (Scottish), Murchi- 
son; Ave verum corpus, Mozart; The 
Broken Melody, Sibelius; Serenade 
d'hiver, Saint-Saens; And Now 'Tis 
Time to Go, Bach; The Shepherdess, 
Macmurrough ; Slovakian Folksong, 
Taylor; Silent Strings, Bantock; How 
Beautiful is Night, De Brant; Dance 
of the Gnomes, MacDowell; Sweet 
Little Jesus Boy, MacGimsey; Cindy, 
Malin; Black-Eyed Susie, Bartholo- 
mew; Beautiful Dreamer, Foster; A 
Spirit Flower, Campbell-Tipton. 

The selections to be played by Mr. 
Schmitt are as follows: Etude in F 
Major, Chopin; Etude in A Minor 
(Winter Wind), Chopin; Poem, Scri- 
abine; and Mephisto Waltz, Liszt. 

The Lebanon Community Concert 
Association is one of a group of simi-

Holds Meeting Tonight 

The Green Blotter will hold the 
second meeting of the year for that 
organization tonight at 8:00 p. m. at 
the home of Dr. Struble in Cleona. 

At this meeting, the newly elected 
members will be presented to the club 
and asked to read some of their most 
recent effusions in accordance with 
the accepted Green Blotter practice, 
by which all members, from time to 
time, offer their work for constructive 
criticism of their fellow members. 

A large number of short works are 
expected to be read, although no in- 
formation could be obtained in ad- 
vance concerning the exact nature of 
these productions. Details will be sub- 
mitted in a later issue.

American Association of Uni- 
ersity Women Sponsor 

An exhibit of forty-seven original 
etchings and lithographs was dis- 
played on the second floor of the li- 
brary on Sunday afternoon, Monday, 
and Tuesday. The American Associ- 
ation of University Women sponsored 
the presentation of the collection, 
which is the work of members of the 
Associated American Artists, an or- 
ganization of fifty-three living ar- 
tists of America. 

Some of the best known etchers and 
lithographers who sent their work are 
Thomas Benton; John Stewart Curry, 
now resident artist at the University 
of Wisconsin; Churchill Ettinger, the 
sportsman's artist; and W. R. Locke, 
who spent twelve years in the forests 
studying trees. The display also in- 
cluded some fishermen by Gordon 
Grant, snow scenes by Adolph Dehn, 
Little Old Lady by Roselle Osk, Karo- 
ly's Glimpses of Old World Architec- 
ture, and Mexican scenes made by Ir- 
win Hoffman, who etches more after 
the fashion of murals. 

Great interest has been shown in 
the exhibit as manifest by the large 
number of both students and friends 
of the college from Annville and 
neighboring towns who viewed the

Class Visits Marietta 

The bacteriology class, under the 
direction of Dr. Light, journeyed 
to Marietta Monday afternoon to 
gain information on the prepara- 
tion of serums and vaccines at the 
Gilliland Laboratories. The trip 
proved very interesting and in- 
structive to the group, who were 
shown all the processes in the 
preparation of antitoxins and vac- 
cines from the growth of the toxic 
or virulent organisms to the final 
sealing of the concentrated anti- 
toxin in bottles for use. 

Of special interest was the ac- 
tual witnessing of how a horse is 
bled to remove some of his blood 
which had been injected with in- 
creasing doses of gas gangrene 
organisms until he had established 
an immunity. The serum of the 
blood was separated and concen- 
trated to the proper strength. The 
group also received information on 
the preparation of diphtheria anti- 
toxin, tuberculosis test serum, and 
smallpox and rabies vaccines.

The Biological Society, at a meeting 
to be held in the biology lecture room 
on Monday, December 13, will pre- 
sent as guest speaker Dr. E. M. Gress, 
state botanist affiliated with the Penn- 
sylvania Department of Agriculture. 

Dr. Gress is well known in botanic- 
al circles of the country. He received 
his degree at Bucknell University in 
1907, his M.A. and Ph.D. from the 
University of Pennsylvania in 1912 
and 1920, respectively. Dr. Gress 
taught in the public schools of Penn- 
sylvania from 1893 to 1920, and since 
the latter year has been state botanist 
of Pennslyvania. He is an outstand- 
ing member of the Botanical Society 
of America, the American Associa- 
tion for the Advancement of Science, 
and the Pennsylvania Academy of Sci- 

In addition to numerous bulletins 
and magazine articles, he has publish- 
ed three books on the plant life of our 
native state, "Grasses of Pennsylva- 
nia," "Common Wild Flowers of Penn- 
sylvania," and "Poisonous Plants of 

All persons interested in botany are 
invited to take advantage of this op- 
portunity to hear an outstanding au- 
thority on the subject.

Conference Held 
at Gettysburg 


Dr. Lynch Heads Faculty Divi- 
s ? on; Horn Presides at Student 
Council; Dr. Newton Speaks 

Anniversary Head 

Thirteen colleges were represented 
n the fall session of the Intercolle- 
giate Student-Faculty Conference of 
Eastern Pennsylvania held at Gettys- 
burg College Dec. 3-5. This was a 
semi-annual conference directed by the 
Student Division of the State Y. M. 
0. A. 

Lebanon Valley was honored in 
having two of the outstanding officers 
of this conference coming from her 
own campus: Dr. Clyde A. Lynch, 
president of the faculty division, and 
Paul E. Horn, president and leader 
of the student council. 

The outstanding figure of the con- 
ference was one of the ablest think- 
ing speakers in America, Dr. Joseph 
Fort Newton of Philadelphia. Other 
important speakers were Mr. Charles 
P. Wuertenberger, General Manager 
of Conroy-Prugh Glass Co., Pitts- 
burgh, and Dr. C. F. Sanders, head of 
philosophy, Gettysburg College. 

There were four Commission Pro- 
jects for each one to choose the most 
suitable discussion group. They were: 
"Sharing Christ In International Af- 
fairs" with Mr. J. Lee Bausher, 
Bausher Knitting Mills, Reading, as 
leader; "Sharing Christ in Industrial 
Affairs" with Mr. Charles Wuerten- 
berger in charge; "Men and Women 
Relationships" by Miss Rebekah S. 
Sheaffer, Dean of Women, Elizabeth- 
town College; and the fourth group 
for the faculty discussion.

German Club Makes Plans 
For One Act Production 

Early in February the German Club 
will present a program consisting of 
a one-act play and a musical ski,t in 
Engle Hall. The play, "Einer muss 
heirten!" by Alexander Wilheth, will 
be directed by Robert Spohn of the 
class of '36. 

The story deals with two university 
professors who were suddenly star- 
tled out of their serene existence by 
their Aunt Gertrude's shocking an- 
nouncement. She reveals that their 
father's will provides that one of 
them must be married before either 
can receive his inheritance. In its 
seven scenes the play reaches a hilar- 
ious climax by each of the dried-up 
professors trying to have the other 
married. The cast is as follows: Es- 
ther Flom, Gertrude; Marianne Treo, 
Luise; Calvin Spitler, Wilhelm; and 
William Clark, Jacob. 

Plans for the musical scene which 
is to follow the play are still quite 
indefinite, but the cast will include 
about twenty persons who will prob 
ably be selected from the underclass- 
es. The skit, which will have an old 
inn for its setting and is devoid of 
plot, consists of songs and musical 
numbers linked by dialogue.

Carol Makh Will Appear 
in Conservatory Recital 

First Student Recital of Year 
Takes Place Tonight in 
Engle Hall 

Students of the Conservatory of 
Music will appear in the first student 
recital of the year tonight at 8 o'clock. 

Featured on the program will be 
the appearance of Carol Malsh, 12 
year old daughter of Professor and 
Mrs. Malsh, who has been acclaimed 
as an outstanding artist in this sec- 
tion of the country. Miss Malsh re 
cently received a warm ovation at a 
tea given by the Camp Hill Civic Club 
where she was introduced by the di- 
rector of the Harrisburg Symphon/ 
Orchestra, for her fine technic and 
unusual command of her instrument. 
Her performance in Thursday's re-, 
cital has been eagerly anticipated. 

The program of the recital will be 
begun by Dorothy Zeiters, who will 
play a cello solo, "Air de Concours" 
from Wagner's "Les Maitres Chan- 
teurs." This will be followed by 
"Morgen" by Strauss, "Si Mi Chia- 
mano Mimi" from Puccini's "La Bo- 
heme," and "The Nightingale" by Al 
abieff, sung by Jean Marbarger, so- 
prano. Carol Malsh will then be heard 
in two movements of Handel's "So- 
nata in E Major," after which James 
Ralston will play Beethoven's "E Ma- 
jor Sonata" at the key board. A group 
of songs by Mildred Gangwer, mezzo- 
soprano, will follow Ralston's solo, 
"Traume," by Wagner, Beethoven's 
"Ich Liebe Dich," and "Widmung," 
by Schumann. Robert Clippinger will 
continue at the console of the organ 
with "Introduction and Allegro," by 
Pagella; and Carol Malsh again make 
her appearance with a violin, play- 
ing, 'Allegro," by Fiocci, "Rondino 
on a Theme by Besthoven," by Frita 
Kreisler, and will conclude the pro- 
gram with Franz Schubert's "The 

The accompanists for the evening 
are Mr. Oliver Spangler, Dorothy 
Yeakel, and Anita PatscHke, who will 
accompany violin, cello, and vocalists,

Post Road, by Steele and Mitchel. Pre- 
sented by the Wig and Buckle in Engle 
Hall, Nov. 22. 

The Broadway critics have a way 
of saying about many and many an 
ill-fated production that it is indeed 
a pity "such good acting has to go to 
waste cn such bad plays. But, as a 
rule, the contrary is most emphati- 
cally true here at Lebanon Valley. 
Just now, however, such does not seem 
;o be the case, for, with the aid of 
3ome of the most brilliant acting we 
have seen on this campus, the Wig 
and Buckle almost succeeded in bring- 
ing to life a play of the variety known 
to the show business as a hokum bill. 
That is to say, in it are stirred to- 
gether all the ancient sure-fire devices 
which have made man laugh and cry 
even since he learned to pay money 
to see other men getting in and out 
of trouble on a platform. There is the 
g-string comedian, the comedy char- 
acter woman, the slick heavy, the sto- 
len baby, the "earthy" humor, and 
several other venerable theatrical fos- 
sils purported to have missed the boat 
the time Noah hauled anchor. We 
missed the sap juvenile, and the mort- 
gage, but probably they were sacri- 
ficed only to make the running time 

These unfortunate facts were made 
much less painfully obtrusive by the 
brilliant handling which almost every 
character received at the hands of the 
actors, who kept up a constantly rapid 
pace that is all too rare hereabout. 

There are several people to whom 
we wish to toes individual bouquets. 
The first of these is Dot Kreamer, vet- 
eran actress, who has been playing

The hockey season was brought to 
a close on Monday evening at 6 o'clock 
when the annual hockey banquet was 
held in the small dining room of 
North Hall. The affair was under 
Jhe supervision of Helen Bartlett, cap- 
tain of the varsity hockey team. 

The guests of honor were Miss Hen- 
dreson, coach of the hockey teams, 
Miss Gillespie, dean of women, and 
members of the council of the Wo- 
men's Athletic Association. The forty 
girls who attended were those who 
played hockey as an extra-curricular 
sport, whether they played on the 
teams or not. The banquet was a typ- 
ical Lebanon Valley affair. 

At the conclusion of the meal the 
girls assembled in the parlor, where 
speeches were given. Dorothy Krea- 
mer, president of the W. A. A., pre- 
sided and Miss Henderson gave the 
introductory speech, after which com- 
ments on the hockey season were giv- 
en by the seniors. " 

Although the scores and results 
were not of the best, the cooperation 
and teamwork were of the highest

No. 1 

Y Follows Renovation 

With Grand Reopening 



One of the favorite national pastimes of a few years back 
used to consist of sneering at the college student as though he 
were an individual in whom the capacity for intellectual activity 
was replaced by one for gin. His diet was thought to be mainly 
cream-puffs and cigarettes, his recreation chiefly the cinema, pet- 
ting, and other diversified and rather stupid forms of sin, and his 
absorption of the culture he had been sent to college to acquire 
practically nil, as by the same token his ability to perform such 
acquisition was less. 

But now the fancy passes, and in its place there comes an 
opposite tendency; there are some liberals who are even willing 
to concede that the homo collegensis in several respects resembles 
a human being of ordinary intelligence and of a degree of culture 
at least slightly higher than that of the aboriginal ape. While this 
new trend may be all very well — who can say? — for the general 
run of colleges, it is at once obvious that it can not possibly apply 
to Lebanon Valley, a college of liberal arts, as the catalogue states, 
for whatever may be its virtues as such an institution, it is certain 
that few of them are reflected in the habits of its students. 

One might reasonably suppose that they would have some 
small interest in the cultural developments — if any — of the day, 
that they would occasionally prefer a good play to a bad movie, or 
Johann Bach to Jack Benny. But do they? Let us examine into 
some of the popular attitudes current on the campus. 

Recently the Wig & Buckle did some of the most brilliant 
acting of its career, indeed almost succeeded in vivifying Post 
Road, and accordingly reaped its reward in due season. But it was 
small reward, to be sure, for most of the student body went to see 
Stella Dallas, instead. Stella Dallas is nothing more than a very 
passee, very meretricious, and totally uninspired melodrama, in 
which some of the Hollywood hand-assorted stumble-bums falter 
their incompetent way to the merciful end. Yet most of the stu- 
dents preferred it to something better. 

To-night the annual series of recitals by students of the 
Conservatory will be inaugurated, probably with an audience of 
not more than fifty forlorn souls, if the experience of previous 
years has any bearing on that of this one. The students will be 
too busy listening to one Mr. Joseph Penner, whose humor is aimed 
at intelligences of something a trifle less than the feeble-minded. 

In Philadelphia people are paying two dollars to see Maurice 
Evans in Richard II. render a performance that may well be the 
peak of a brilliant career. But students at Lebanon Valley will 
mostly spend their two dollars for Coca-Cola. 

We make no comment. 

Prof, and Mrs. Carmean Will 
Entertaining Program Next 

The formal, or perhaps informal 
reopening of the Y. M. C. A. room in 
the Men's Dorm will take place next 
Tuesday night at an as yet unan- 
nounced time. The Y room has been 
'shut down for repairs' for the last 
several weeks while the work of re- 
habilitation has been going on. 

Prof, and Mrs. Carmean will be the 
host and hostess of the evening and 
receive the guests. By the term 
'guest' is meant not only the inhabi- 
tants of the Dorm who are members 
of the Y, but also all the women stu- 
dents on the campus, who are invited 
to attend the open house, in the Y 
room. Entertainment is being pro- 
vided for and worked out by the Y 
cabinet. Part of the program, will 
include the presentation of old-fash- 
ioned street medicine show, complete 
with barker, musical talent, and 
'medicine,' in some form or other. 
Robert Clippinger, vice-president of 
the Y. M. C. A., will favor the gather- 
ing with several musical selections on 
his Cleo-Cola xylophone. The newly- 
adopted mascot of the Y cabinet will 
also be present, if it is still ai-ound the 
place by that time. 

The Y room has been completely 
renovated and redecorated in the pres- 
ent campaign to restore its pristine 
glory and beauty. New chrome metal 
furniture has been purchased for the 
reading room, with the old being put 
on the retirement list, and the read- 
ing tables have been stained mahogany 
(cherry-red). New light fixtures have 
been installed as well as new drap- 
?ries. The woodwork is in the process 
>f being revarnished, and one rug 
las received a shampooing, although 
in view of the great expenditure al- 

Be Hosts to All Students at an 

ready being made, it was deemed wise 
not to add to the expense by purchas- 
ing another bottle of shampoo. The 
radio has also been reconditioned, and 
it is now possible to tune automati- 
cally, that is, the dial moves when the 
tuning knob is turned. 

In the recreation room provision has 
been made for a closer supervision of 
of the recreation facilities. The pool 
equipment will be checked and handed 
out from a desk or counter, taken care 
of by a N. Y. A. student, on somewhat 
the same order in which it is done in 
a regular Y. M. C. A. recreation room. 
In this way closer check can be made 
on the use of equipment and abuse 
thereof reduced or eliminated. Curvin 
Thompson, president of the Y. M. C. 
A,, stated that the members of the Y 
cabinet have been empowered to hand 
in for faculty committee action the

1 25 Couples Present 
Including Alu^mnae 
And Faculty Guests 

The Sixty-seventh Anniversary 
dance of the Clionian Literary Society 
was held Saturday, December 4, at 
8 o'clock in the Spanish Room of the 
Hershey Hotel. Music was furnished 
by Howard Gale and his orchestra. 

Nearly 125 couples attended the 
dance. Besides regular members and 
their escorts, there were a number of 
alumnae present including, Gayle 
Mountz, Grace Naugle, Lois Harbold, 
Ruth Buck, Maxine Early, Louise 
Shearer, Louise Gillan, Charlotte 
Weirick, Margaret Longnecker, Mil- 
dred Nye, Helen Hain, and Sara Mc 

Punch was served by the caterers 
on the floor during the dancing. The 
highlight of the evening was, of 
course, the "Big Apple" in the eastern 
end of the ballroom, and a balloon 

The chaperones of the evening were 
Miss Mary E. Gillespie and Dr. and 
Mrs. A. H. M. Stonecipher, who with

Breakfast at the Pennway 








Football has about passed on foi' 
another year, but it is not yet too late 
to review some of the highlights of 
tne past season. Our boys here at L. 
Y, C. did a pretty good job consider- 
ing everything. The schedule was re- 
ally tough; not a breather along the 
whole line. Furthermore, injuries de- 
prived the team of a sterling lineman 
in Frank Rozman. The team was prob- 
ably at its best in the season's finale 
with Juniata, but they also did very 
well by themselves at Upsala. How 
about a vote of thanks to Chris Walk, 
the boy whose spirit never waned? 
He surely is a big asset both as a 
player and morale builder! 

* * * 

Our deadly emenies down Reading 
way had plenty to brag about up un- 
til the last game of the season. They 
were the only team in the whole coun- 
try that was not scored upon, but the 
Mules of Muhlenberg made them eat 
those words along with their turkey 
on Thanksgiving. A late touchdown 
put Albright right back with every- 
body else in the matter of being scored 
upon. Our hats are off to those Mules 
who had to end up the season by 
meeting two undefeated teams in 
Dickinson and Albright and marring 
one record of the latter. (Allen town 
papers please copy!) We have not 
forgotten that the Muhlenberg student 
publication called our team the worst 
looking outfit they had ever seen, but 
at least we are sports enough to give 
them credit for accomplishing some- 
thing notable when they do it. 

* * * 

Ye olde Keystone State did pretty 
well by itself this past season in the 
matter of undefeated teams. "Hooks" 
Mylin's Lafayette Leopards alone of 
the big teams in the East was able to 
win all of its games. Jock Suther- 
land's Pitt Panthers were tied by 
Fordham, but were considered the 
best in the country by many experts. 
Villanova was another national lead- 
er, a tie with Holy Cross being the 
Mot on their record. Among the small 
colleges Albright, Dickinson, and Lock 
Haven Teachers each came through 
with only a deadlock to mar their oth- 
erwise perfect records. 

For a real gridiron show we would 
'ike to present the National Profes- 
sorial League tilt between New York 
J n< * Washington last Sunday as the 

e st of the year anywhere. The score 
J f 49-14 indicates, not that the game 
'J^s really one-sided, but that the 
Washington Redskins were truly an 
Aspired team all afternoon. The pass- 
ln ? of Slingin' Sam Baugh was sen- 
jjhonal as demonstrated by the fact 

at 12 of his 15 heaves found their 

av into the hands of the intended 
Reivers. Cliff Battles gave an exhi- 
f ] 10n of running that tops all others 

° r the season in any class of football.

Juniata Downed 
In Grid Finale 

16-0 Count Gives Valley ites 
Fourth Win and Even 
Break for Season 

The 1937 football season came to its 
end for Coach Frock's Flying Dutch- 
men on November 20 as they conquer- 
ed a strong Juniata team by a 16-0 
count. By winning this game the Blue 
and White gridders succeeded in break- 
ing even for the season, winning four 
and losing the same number. Consider- 
ing the calibre of the opposition, this 
was a fine record. There was not a 
setup on the schedule. 

The team as a whole was decidedly 
lacking in consistency. Even in drop- 
ping the season's opener the team 
displayed a fine brand of ■football. In 
that game the Bucknell eleven just 
had too much power for the Flying 
Dutchmen to cope with. Their second 
appearance of the season was un- 
doubtedly the sorriest. For some un- 
known reason everything went wrong 
in that Muhlenberg game in Allen- 
town. The first victory of the cam- 
paign was scored at the expense of 
Delaware the following week. In this 
game Tony Rozman won himself na- 
tional recognition by kicking three 
field goals from placement. The third 
defeat was then suffered at the hands 
of a tough St. Joseph's team in a sea 
of mud. 

On October 30 the annual Home- 
coming game, this time against Penn- 
sylvania Military College, was staged 
on the local gridiron. In a rather dull 
game the Cadets were subdued by 
Rozman's fourth field goal of the sea- 
son. The November part of the cam- 
paign was opened by a journey into 
New Jersey where the Upsala College 
team was met for the first time. In 
what several New Jersey football ex- 
perts called the most thrilling college 
game they ever witnessed, the East 
Orangeites were conquered 3-0. Next 
the traditional Albright-Lebanon Val- 
ley rivalry was continued. Led by 
Dick Riffle, the super Albright team 
scored a deserved victory 16-0. The 
season was then concluded by Juni- 
ata being beaten by that same score. 

Recollections of this 1937 gridiron 
season will center around two men, 
Captain Gordon Davies and Tony Roz- 
man, the former for his consistently 
great line playing, and the latter for

Helps open Season 
On Jan. 8 

After a week of conditioning prac- 
tices, Coach Metoxen "held his first 
formal practice session in the Ann- 
ville high school gym Tuesday after- 
noon. The "Chief" has until January 
8 to develop a smooth-functioning 
quintet. On that date the Dutchmen 
will meet F. & M., last year's cham- 
pions of the Eastern Pennsylvania 
Collegiate League, in the curtain-rais- 

Among the aspirants responding to 
Metoxen's call were five letter men 
left over from last year. They are 
Raymie Frey, Ed Kress, Ralph Bil- 
let, Tony Rozman, and Bob Brown. 
With these veterans as a nucleus, 
Coach Metoxen will seek to groom 
capable reserves from last year's 
freshman players — Chris Walk, Dan- 
ny Seiverling, Jim Whitman, Bob 
Artz, Johnny Schaeffer, and Dennis 
Geesey. Other candidates vfeihg for 
the coveted positions are Dolph Cap- 
ka, Marshal Frey, Cal Spitler, and 
Jake Umberger. 

It appears from a cursory glance 
at the list of candidates, then, that 
the coach's chief worry this year will 
be a dearth of reserve material. 
Whether last year's freshmen are 
ready for varsity competition this 
year is, at the moment, purely con- 
jectural, and largely upon this will 
hinge the success of the '38 L. V. C. 

The 1938 schelule arrangement calls 
for thirteen games, including one non- 
league game. Two of these, the L. V. 
C.-Albright and L. V. C.-Gettysburg 
tilts, will be played in the Hershey

Hocky Passes; Basketball Here 

The girls' hockey teams closed their 
season last week with an exciting and 
interesting inter-class team game. 
The frosh-junior combination spilled 
the sophomore-senior team to the tune 
of 2-0. The fact that the teams were 
chosen only a short time before the 
game and the result, that no formal 
practices were held, resounds to the 
even greater glory of the winning 

Much credit must be given to Jean 
Houck who scored both goals for the 
frosh and juniors, but Helen Bartlett 
must also be credited with playing a 
.ine game, both as center-forward and 
inner. Many of the freshman players 
^how possibilities of becoming good 
hockey players, and the teams in the 
uture have something • to look for- 
ward to. 

Seniors who played their last hockey 
game were Dorothy Kreamer, Cather- 
ine Mills, Ernestine Jagnesak, Lucille 
Hawthorne, Barbara Sloan, and Gail 

Saturday afternoon witnessed the 
opening of the girl's basketball season. 
Lebanon Valley opposed Shippensburg 
State Teachers College in a demon- 
stration game. The contest was held 
for the purpose of giving prospective 
referees their national and state ref- 
eree examinations. Another of these 
exams will be given in February, at 
which time four of Lebanon Valley's 
senior girls will take the test. 

The game on Saturday furnished an 
excellent opportunity for L. V. to be- 
come familiar with new rules and 
regulations and also to discover team 
faults. The approximate, highly un- 
official score was: Lebanon Valley 32, 
Shippensburg 11. 

The hockey players and guests were 
entertained at a banquet, December 6.

selected an all opponent team. For 
the third consecutive year Ed.

positions on this mythical outfit. La

Lebanon Valley, received two places 
in the voting.

comedy roles on and off for four years 
around hei'e with more or less success, 
but who, in her interpretation of 
Emily Madison, attains what is prob- 
ably the apex of her career. Our 
loudest huzzahs are unequal to what 
the occasion demands. 

Likewise, we should like to declare 
ourselves in favor of the ladies who 
made their debut in this place, to wit, 
Betty Bender, whose fidgetty wearing 
of the family pants as Mrs. Preble 
kept the audience in stitches, Laurene 
Dreas, whose tough moll nurse was 
without flaws of any kind, or rather, 
whose interpretation was with- 
out flaws, and Margy Bordwell 
who appeared in a bit that would lead 
us to believe the girl might have the 
stuff actresses are made of if only we 
saw more of her, and Myrtle Leff, who 
did some quite ingenious pantomine, 
which, unfortunately broke down oc- 
casionally into plain mugging. But 
then it happens in the best of shows. 

Another matter of interest to us 
was to see Bob Tschop appear, at last, 
in a straight role. He had been hither- 
to winning rather large laurels for 
rather easy character parts in which 
it was possible to cover quite a bit 
with false whiskers and fancy diction. 
Now however, we've seen him without 
his trappings, and he proves to be 
competent that way too. That, we 
think, is the true test of whether or 
not a player is an actor or a good ac- 
tor. Almost any competent stroller 
can look pretty good when done up 
as a crazy man, an eccentric, or any- 
thing else which requires a good 
strong voice and the ability to take 
directions, but it is only your true 
thespians who can shine when depriv- 
ed of all the high-flown accoutrements 
of such parts. Mr. Tschop definitely 
shines. Ergo, he's good. Quod est 
demons tradum . 

Vernon Rogers, ever a competent 
G. Whilacker Hays man, comes 
through again, too. We've never seen 
him as anything else, but he's been 
thoroughly amusing whenever he trod 
the boards. Whether he is capable of 
other roles, of course, is an open ques- 
tion, but then, who cares about that, 
with the price of steel and all ? Besides 
there are other things to talk about, 
such as Robert Hackman, a freshman 
who surprised by turning in a perfor- 
mance of striking verisimilitude as a 
gruff-tough gendarme. We always 
thought there was some kind of school 
the polizei went to in order to acquire 
that mastery of bad manners, stupid- 
ity, and sheer vituperative genius pe- 
culiar to the profession, but along 
came Mr. Hackman to prove otherwise. 
Strange how one's illusions all get 
busted anymore. 

And aside from Curvin Thompson, 
again the drooling divine to an ex- 
tremely well-modelled T, here ends the 
paen of praise. Those persons who 
think we lack the old time ze~t with 
which, in days of yore, we used to 
insult the hapless wights who dared 
don the mask are directed to read 
the following, which, we regret, it is 
our sad duty to include. 

We thought long and earnestly over 
the question of what to do about Miss 
Haas who was supposed to have play 
ed what — for want of a better word — 
we shall call a modified soubrette, 
although the term is somewhat inac 
curate, but arrived at the conclusion 
that most unhappily there was very 
little we could do, for she was neither 
very modified nor noticeably soubret- 
tish. Instead, she seemed to be just 
a little girl who was pleased, sur 
prised, and a trifle frightened to find 
herself really and truly playacting 

She was not quite so ineffectual, 
though, as Doyle Summer whose act-

Student-Faculty Conference 
Held At Gettysburg 

(Continued from page 1) 

The local Y. W. C. A. was repre- 
sented by Helen Netherwood, Mildred 
Haas, and Audrie Fox, while Paul 
Horn, Vernon Rogers, Harry Dren- 
dall, and John Ness attended for the 
Y. M. C. A. 

The other colleges represented were 
Dickinson Junior Seminary of Willi- 
amsport, Elizabethtown, Franklin and 
Marshall, Juniata, Kutztown State 
Teachers' College, Lock Haven State 
Teachers' College, Messiah Bible Col- 
lege, Millersville State Teachers' Col- 
lege, Muhlenberg, Shippensburg State 
Teachers' College, West Chester State 
Teachers' College, and Gettysburg. 
The attendance plaque was awarded 
to Dickinson Junior Seminary on the 
basis of having the largest number 
present having come the greatest dis- 

Dr. Joseph Fort Newton gave to 
the conference many thoughtful and 
thought-inspiring suggestions. His 
subjects were "What Have We To 
Share?" and "The How and When Of 
Sharing." He emphasized that no 
man is useless, who uses a friend; no 
man is hopeless, who has a friend. 
Christ is our friend, let us use him. 

The opening session of the confer- 
ence was held in the College Lutheran 
Church and open to the public. Paul 
Horn presided at this service as well 
as the closing session, which was held 
in the Gettysburg College Student 
Christian Association Building. 

Toward the close of each day a few 
hours were alloted for a general soci- 
al gathering, in which all took part. 
A feature of these get-togethers was 
a functioning and live-wire date bur- 
eau. Many of the delegates utilized 
the services of this organization to a 
good advantage. A gala dance was 
held in the Women's Division for the 
benefit of the conference on Saturday 
evening. The dorm was decorated 
with typical Christmas assortments. 

A very beneficial tour of the Gettys- 
burg Battlefield was conducted by the 
professor of American History. The 
mind of each delegate was stimulated 
through the earnest efforts of those 
in charge of this conference. 

Arrangements have not been com- 
pleted for the spring sessions which 
will be held April 29, 30, and May 1. 
But the place of that assembly will 
be announced at a later time. 

ing was bad with a badness that de- 
fies description and confuses the cri- 
tical faculty. We were almost totally 
unable to decide what he was supposed 
to be up to on the stage — a point, in- 
deed, on which he too seemed to be 
somewhat confused. Perhaps the less 
one says, the better one will be liked 
In spite of these things the audience 
— what there was of it — seemed to 
enjoy the proceedings, even if they 
did fail to get the drift of some very, 
very obvious gags. Their applau; e 
doubtless will testify to Dr. Struble, 
who directed the opus, the high degree 
of success with which his efforts were 
attended better than any words of 
ours. Therefore we conclude this half 
diatribe-half benediction without fur- 
ther elucidation on the point. 

Life Work Recruit 
Members Active 

Deputations travel 
to Millersburg 
and Shepherdstown 

On Sunday, December 5, a Life 
Work Recruit deputation motored to 
Millersburg, Pennsylvania, and spent 
the afternoon at the home of Evelyn 
Miller. In the evening the Recruits 
conducted the church service in the 
Millersburg United Brethren Church, 
of which Rev. S. T. Dundore is the 
pastor. John Ness was in general 
charge of the seiwice and introduced 
the members of the deputation. The 
devotions, including scripture and 
prayer, were conducted by Carl Ehr- 
hart, and the sermon of the evening, 
"God, the Source of Our Sufficency," 
was delivered by Thomas Guinivan. 
Lucie Cook provided the musical part 
of the program by. giving two vocal 
solos, accompanied on the piano by 
Esther Wise. Miss Wise also played 
for the offertory. About 200 people 
were included in the audience and 
heard the program, which also in- 
cluded, besides the numbers contri- 
buted by the Recruits, an anthem by 
the Millersburg choir. 

Another Life Work Recruit depu- 
tation was sent to the Shepherdstown 
United Brethren Church on Sunday. 
The delegation participated in the 
Christian Endeavor service and con- 
ducted the evening church service. 
Agnes Morris spoke in the former and 
tead the scripture lesson in the latter. 
As part of the Christian Endeavor pro- 
gram Dorothy Yeakel played a piano 
selection. Howard Peffley gave the 
sermon on the theme, "Whom Do Men 
Say That I Am?" Two inspiring vocal 
solos were sung by Mildred Gardner. 

Colonial Park United Brethren 
Church, Rev. Russel Shay, pastor, had 
as its guests the members of a third 
Recruit deputation on Sunday. Jane 
Ehrhart was in charge of the church 
service and conducted the devotions. 
'The Three at Bethany" was the title 
of a sermon delivered by Paul Myers. 
John Zettlemover in playing two vio- 
lin selections contributed the muscial 
portion of the program. His accom- 
panist was Anita Patschke.

kicking six field goals to be the leader 
in the East in this department. Davies 
missed approximately one minute all 
fall. The remainder of the time he 
spent very much jn the games. 
Throughout the whole campaign he 
made most of the tackles and proved 
an inspirational leader also. Rozman's 
feat of booting those six field goals 
put him at or near the head of this 
department for the nation. The ac- 
complishment is all the more remark- 
able when it is remembered that his 
field goals provided the margin of vic- 
tory in both the Upsala and P. M. C. 

The team will lose only four men 
by graduation; Davies, Frank Roz- 
man, Pete Fridinger, and John Wal- 
mer. Rozman was almost a total loss 
to the team this year because of an 
injured leg which consistently resist- 
ed treatment. Walmer's story is much 
the same. Fridinger, on the other 
hand, was one of vital cogs in the 
machine. As a blocking back and line- 
backer he was tops. Coach Frock will 
probably find him difficult to replace. 

Others to be awarded letters were: 
Kress, Brown,* Sponaugle, Katchmer, 
Kuhn, Lennon, Walk, Bosnyak, Her-

La Vic Considers In Retrospect 
Events Of Year Now Nearing End 

Survey Of Year Indicates 
Diversity In Activities 

La Vie in a reminiscing mood takes 
time out, not to look into the future 
b y means of a crystal ball, but rather 
mto the past via a stack of last year's 
^sues. Forthwith are presented a few 
° f the items that made the front page 
m the year gone by: 

Sunday, January 3 — Students re- 
urn from Christmas vacation to rest 
U P a bit from a strenuous vacation 
an d for approaching exams. 

Thursday, January 7 — Results of 
ell gious poll of students announced, 
pealing that the typical Lebanon

Men Of 3 Creeds 
Hold Discussion 
In Chapel Service 

Represent Catholic, 

And Jewish Religions 

An unusual triangular discussion, 
participated in by representatives of 
the three leading American faiths, 
featured the Tuesday morning chapel 
service. Serving as spokesman for the 
Catholic church was the Honorable 
Richard J. Beamish, member of the 
Cathedral Catholic Church and of the 
Public Utilities Commission. In like 
capacity as proponent of the Protest- 
ant persuasion was Reverend Doctor 
Everett R. Clinchy, a Presbyterian 
minister of New York City. The third 
theologue, appearing for the Jewish 
Church, was the Reverend Doctor 
Philip D. Bookstaber, rabbi of the Re- 
formed Jewish Congregation of Har- 

The meeting of these three divines, 
as Dr. Clinchy stated in his introduc- 
tion, was to the end, not of "watering 
down" any particular religions, but 
rather of becoming mutually acquaint- 
ed with the individual faiths. This 
knowledge, he declared, will produce 
tolerance, understanding and unani- 
mity, which are especially desirable 
in the face of recent encroachments 
by the totalitarian state. 

First to pose a question was Mr. 
Beamish, who prefaced his interroga- 
tion with the affirmation that a time 
lock has been set on the race, which 
makes its death inevitable. The end 
of the race will be followed by a judg- 
ment of humanity according to its 
tolerance of its members. 

Rabbi Bookstaber then arose in re- 
ply to Mr. Beamish's question which 
concerned the Position of Judaism on 
the question of Christ as the Messiah. 
Dr. Bookstaber revealed that Jewry

Seniors Seek Bids 
On Caps And Gowns 

At a meeting of the senior class, 
held on Tuesday, December 14, a 
committee to receive bids on caps 
and gowns was appointed. This 
body consists of Elizabeth Bender, 
chairman, David Byerly, George 
Lazorjack, and Agnes Morris. 
Among other things discussed were 
the problems of invitations and 
programs for Commencement, pre- 
sented by Paul Ulrich, and senior 
exemption from final examinations. 

Debaters Pick Teams 
For Approaching Year 

Plans are being laid for quite an 
extensive debating season this year 
for the men's debating team. About 
twenty-five debates are tentatively 
scheduled by the debating manager, 
Calvin Spitler, with the help of the 
assistant-manager, Raymond Smith. 

Those students who have shown an 
interest in debating and out of whom 
the two teams, affirmative and nega- 
tive, will be chosen are Clifford Barn- 
hart, Curvin Dellinger, Boyd Shaffer, 
Calvin Spitler, Raymond Smith, Carl 
Ehrhart, Paul Myers, John Ness, Ir- 
win Schoen, Marlin Espenshade, and 
Harvey Snyder. 

The question for debate this year 
will be: Resolved, that the National 
Labor Relations Board should be em- 
powered to enforce arbitration of all 
industrial disputes. All the debates 
will be decision debates, reversing 
last year's practice of non-decision 
contests, when only a few verdicts 
were rendered and of these, only one 
taking place on Lebanon Valley's

College Catches 
Festive Tempo 
Of Christmas 

Women Students. Extend 
Cordiality At Musical 
Parties In Dorms 

Christmas celebration was in full 
swing and held complete sway on the 
College campus last night, at least 
in each of the girls' dormitories. These 
were strictly feminine affairs, with 
the male element getting its chance 
to shine, or burn out, tonight follow- 
ing the banquet. Each dormitory pra- 
sented an extensive musical program, 
interspersed with stories and read- 

The party held in South Hall was 
in charge of the hall president, Ella 
Mason, who was assisted by the fol- 
lowing committee members: Dorothea 
Kroll, Edna Rutherford, Frances Dy- 
son, Fern Poet, Ruth Rohrer, Joseph- 
ine Ernst, Alice Dietrich, Margaret 
Druck, Jean McKeag, Wanda Price, 
and Barbara Bowman. 

The Frosh were placed in charge 
of the program which consisted of: 
South Hall Prophecy, South Hall po- 
em, carols in various languages, solo,; 
"O Holy Night," by Mildred Gang- 
wer, "Gypsy Love Song," and a clari- 
net solo by Louise DeHuff, assisted at 
the piano by Edna Rutherford. Myr- 
tle and Elaine Leff gave a medley of 
Christmas carols while the girls were 
coming down to the parlor. After the 
program gifts were exchanged, each 
accompanied by an appropriate verse. 
For this party the parlor was hung 
with strands of laurel and red bells, 
and a tree trimmed in red and green

Perform Commendably 

by Robert P. Tschop 
Last Wednesday evening witnessed 
the presentation of another campus 
dramatic project in the form of this 
year's Junior Class Play. Our little 
dissertation proposes to deal, at some 
length, with "The Women Have Then- 
Way," the various people who appear- 
ed therein, and other assorted minu- 
tiae incidental to the main event of 
the evening. 

To begin with, the vehicle chosen 
to carry the dramatic fortunes of the 
juniors to glory was, we think, not too 
well chosen. While having some know- 
ledge of the difficulties involved in 
selecting something suitable for pro- 
duction on this campus, we do think 
that something better could have been 
found than "The Women Have Their 
Way." The plot was to say the least, 
light and frothy; one might almost say 
superficial or even negligible. It is 
doubtful, at the outset, whether a 
Spanish play has any attraction at 
all for our students other than the 
novelty of seeing a lace mantilla (if 
there was one) gracing the figure of 
some young lady with whom we asso-

Home comings are happy times for everyone but gayest of all are those that 
re-unite the family at the Christmas season. With the approaching festivities 
of Christmas at hand mothers and fathers are planning surprises that will glad- 
den the hearts of their boys and girls. All about the home is the delightfully 
mysterious air of Christmas. 

Soon thousands of our nation's youth will be leaving schools and colleges to 
enjoy Christmas at home. They will bring with them a knowledge of new things 
and thousands of them will be able to tell their parents that they are feeling fit 
and are in the best of health. Thousands can say proudly that they passed a per- 
fect physical examination and that the doctor congratulated them when they were 
?iven the tuberculin test and showed no signs of having tuberculosis. 

No news should thrill the hearts of fathers and mothers like this news be- 
cause tuberculosis claims more victims between the ages of 15 and 25 years than 
any other disease. That is whv we need tuberculin tests periodically for all our 
young men and women and especially for young women in this age group because 
bhe death rate for them is one and one-half times that of young men of the same 
age. Scientists have not yet discovered the exact reason for this tragic situa 
tion, but we have it to face. 

Our newer knowledge of tuberculosis ^hieh Includes tuberculin tests and 
X-rays is now making it poss'ble to discover cases early so that young men and 
women can live long and useful lives. By your purchase of Christmas Seals you 
are helping to build better health for o'ir nation's youth. By your purchase of 
Christmas Seals you are helping to preserve American family life.

Commercial Museum j 
Presents Minerals 
To Chemistry Dept. 

Lebanon Valley has just receive 
a suite of minerals from the farn 0Us 
deposit at Ivigut, Greenland. Th e 
were presented by Dr. Charles ^ 
Toothaker, curator of the Comm er 
cial Museum, Philadelphia. Dr. Toot 
haker made a special trip to Green 
land last summer to get minerals and 
through the efforts of Dr. Bender p re . 
sented a group to the College. There 
is no obligation on the part of Leba 
non Valley, but the favor is recipr . 
cated by Dr. Bender's presenting ^ 
the Philadelphia Museum some very 
fine gold telluride obtained on a min 
eral collecting trip in Colorado l ast 

Ivigut, Greenland, is noted for it s 
cryolite deposit — the only one of com- 
mercial importance in the world. This 
mineral, as is well known, is the only 
usable flux for the commercial pro- 
duction of metallic aluminum. 

Lebanon Valley appreciates this ad- 
dition to her mineral collection.

The Collegiate Review 

(By Associated Collegiate Press) 

A student at Lebanon Valley College is a member of a song writing team 
w hose newest attempt, "Married By the Moon," will be introduced shortly 
oV er the major networks, by Horace Heidt, Raymond Paige, Rudolph Friml, 
j r > and Ray Keating. 

' Patrick O'Shaughnessy Flynn, a goat belonging to a sorority at the Uni- 
versity of Minnesota, is leaving for his home in Grinnell, Iowa. It isn't be- 
cause Patrick doesn't like the campus, but because his garage has been rented 
to a car. 

Thirteen-year-old Catherine McGrath will be a sophomore at the Uni- 
versity of Washington in January. Her forte is mathematics, which she just 
coasts through for "A's". She finished the eighth grade four years after, 
starting school. She hopes to earn a bachelor of science degree in mathemat- 
ics and then study law. 

Football is the most dangerous sport, but it is more dangerous to drive a 
car to the stadium than it is to play in the game, according to a professor at 
Yale University. 

Latest In Nightwear 

The latest thing in winter nightwear for coeds is not sophisticated satin 
and lace, but pajamas of outing flannel that have hoods and feet attached. 
Woolly snuggle puppies give the girls something to cuddle up to on cold win- 
ter nights. 

There will be at least 1,000,000 fewer children in the United States aged 
9 to 16 in 1940 than in 1930, and there are only half as many children under 
5 in Manhattan now as in 1920, according to studies made by Provost Rufus 
B. Smith of New York University. 

Freshmen at the University of Vermont are on the average younger, 
heavier and taller than the freshman class of 10 years ago. 

Student Supreme Court ! 

Five University of Kansas students, charged with having disfigured 
property on the Kansas State College campus in violation of an interschool 
pact, are being tried before the Student Supreme Court. 

A doctor in San Francisco has been sued for the cost of his education by 
his parents who put things on a business basis when he attained manhood, 
mortgaged the home to keep him in school, and kept strict account of every 
cent they spent on him. 

A senior at Union College wanted an organ when he was a freshman, but 
figured it would take him a life-time to save the $25,000 necessary to buy one. 
He set about building one, and now owns an instrument that has three man- 
uals, a full set of foot pedals and seven ranks of free reeds. He has rebuilt 
it three times. 

CAMBRIDGE, MASS. — (ACP) — A giant miscroscope, weighing nearly 
one ton, built on a new slow-motion focusing principle, was described recent* 
ly at Harvard University. 

It works somewhat like the world's largest telescope in reverse. It fo- 
cuses by remote, electric control. It magnifies distinctly 6,000 diameters, which 
is four times more than the theoretical limit of clear definition.

stood in the corner. The smaller par- 
lor was also colorfully decorated. 

In the laurel trimmed parlor of 
West Hall, a dorm party was held, 
supervised by Ethel Houtz. Here, as 
in South Hall, the work was distri- 
buted among various committees. They 
were: Invitations — Audrie Fox and 
Lucille Oiler; program- — Dorothy Yea- 
kel, Dorothy Zeiters, and Grace Gey- 
er; gifts — Evelyn Miller, Ethel Houtz 
and Lucie Cook; refreshments — Bea- 
trice Zamojski, Edith Metzger, and 
Esther Wise ; decorations — Mabel Mil- 
ler, Frances Prutzman, Sara Ann 
Weikert, and Margaret Boyd. The 
story, "The Other Wise Man," was 
presented by Grace Geyer and Doro- 
thy Yeakel. The musical background 
for this was several cello selections 
by Dorothy Zeiters accompanied on 
the piano by Esther Wise. The ex- 
change of gifts followed this pro- 

The party held in North Hall was 
planned by Helen Netherwood, the 
hall president, who was assisted by a 
refreshment committee composed of 
Lillian Zubroff, Margaret Bordwell, 
Louise Saylor, Arlene Hoffman, and 
Mary Elizabeth Spangler. The follow- 
ing program had been arranged : "The 
Night Before Christmas," by Evelyn 
Evans; song by Isabelle Cox; a Christ- 
mas story by Sylva Harclerode, "Ev- 
erywhere, Everywhere, Christmas To- 
night;" skit, "The Ideal Christmas 
List." Santa Claus Maberry distri- 
buted the gifts to all the girls, and a 
gift from the dorm was given to Miss 
Gillespie. Isabelle Cox then led in the 
singing of Christmas carols before re- 
freshments and after the close of the

today is divided into two groups with 
respect to this question. The Ortho- 
dox division believes the Messiah has 
not yet come, and therefore rejects 
Christ as Messiah. The Reformed or 
Prophetic division, on the contrary, 
maintain there is to be no personal 
Messiah, but only a Messianic King- 
dom of brotherhood and peace upon 

The Orthodox and Reformed Jews 
furthermore, differ in diet and other 
practices. In the Orthodox synagogue 
the sexes are segregated; in the Re- 
formed, parity of the male and female 
prevails. Mention of Christ, the cross, 
or the New Testament is anathema 
in the former, but recognized in the 

Dr. Bookstaber responded to a sec- 
ond question by declaring that there 
is no causal relation between Juda- 
ism and Communism. A Jew cannot 
theoretically be a communist since an 
atheist cannot remain a Jew. He in- 
dicated that only Tour men of Rus- 
sia's commissariat are full blooded 

Mr. Beamish followed, to explain 
:he Catholic belief regarding the sal- 
vation of souls outside the Catholic 
church. He proceeded to quote from 
Pope Leo XIII upon this problem: 
"Unto every soul is given light suffi- 
cient to salvation." He intimated that 
the Catholic adherent has more re- 
sponsibility before God because of his 
greater light. 

Continuing in response to another 
question dealing with the parochial 
school system, Mr. Beamish showed 
that they arose from the neglect of 
spiritual training by the secular 
schools, and from the willingness of 
the Catholic laity to support the dou- 
ble burden of church and state 

Believing in turn-about being fair 
play, Br. Beamish put the poser to 
Dr. Lynch and Dr. Clinchy whether 
the Protestant schism of Luther 
would have occurred under a liberal 
pontificate and after reformation of 
the Catholic Church such as that ef- 
fected by the Council of Trent. 

Pursuing the role of interlocutor, 
Mr. Beamish introduced the topic of 
toleration. He reminded his audience 
that our country has not yet had a 
Catholic President, and that Catholic 
government executives are few. Mr. 
Beamish went on to suggest that fre- 
quently such groups as the Ku Klux 
Klan are of Protestant instigation. 

He was answered by Dr. Lynch, 
who pointed out that dishonors on both 
Catholic and Protestant records are 
fairly even. Dr. Clinchy showed how 
only the less worthy elements of Prot- 
estantism belong to the Ku Klux Klan 
and other intolerant bodies. "We all 
recognize," he stated, "that the safe- 
ty of one in America is the safety of 

Dr. Bookstaber in summarizing pic- 
tured the Jew as a member of a race 
which has had to adapt itself to many 
and all kinds of conditions and other 
races. The Turkish Jew becomes a 
Turk in features and hab'ts; the Jew 
in Germany assimilated himself to the 
racial characters of the German. The 
:ame process is taking place in Amer- 

Developing this theme, Mr. Bea- 
mish made the point in his resume 
that mankind is groping for broth- 
erhood and toleration. Dr. Clinchy fi- 
nally affirmed that the road to these 
objectives lies in the direction of unit- 
ing and mobilizing all religious forces, 
through whose "compounded efforts" 
the problems of social justice, eco- 
nomic fair play, world peace, delin- 
quency and crime may successfully 
be coped with. 

Day Student Girls 
Will Hold Party 
In South Hall 

The girl day students, filled with 
the Christmas spirit, are planning a 
party for this evening at four-thirty 
in South Hall parlor. Committees, 
appointed by the president of the girl 
day students, Lucille Hawthorne, have 
been functioning to make the affair 
possible. Adele Black heads the pro- 
gram committee, while the refresh- 
ment committee is in charge of Lu- 
cille Koons. One of the main fea- 
tures of the social will be the ex- 
changing of amusing inexpensive 

The rooms of the commuters dis- 
play the spirit of Yuletide, with a 
.arge tree occupying a central place. 
Besides the ornaments decorating the 
,ree, the red and green streamers, the 
holly wreaths, and various other dec- 
jrations lend the rooms a Christmas- 
ike atmosphere. 

As the feeling of generosity and 
good will is more prevalent at this 
ame of the year than at any other, 
.he girls are purchasing and donating 
Jood for Christmas baskets to be giv- 
en to less fortunate families. 

Maberry To Preside 
At "V Service 

Tomorrow Morning 

The Y. W. C. A. and the Y. M. C. A. 
will again sponsor an early morning 
Christmas service in the chapel to- 
morrow morning at six o'clock. This 
is a joint session with the whole stu- 
dent body invited to attend. 

At 5:45 a trombone quartet, con- 
sisting of Frank Bryan, Philip Les- 
ter, Dennis Geesey, and Fred Shadlc, 
will play several Christmas carols 
and hymns as a prelude to the service. 
Robert Clippinger will preside at the 
console of the organ for the prelude 
and general singing. Vocal numbers 
will be contributed by Virginia Neiss- 
ner, vocal soloist, and a male quartet, 
consisting of Daniel Shearer, Paul 
Slonaker, Lloyd Beamesderfer, and 
Charles Miller. Instrumental music 
will be furnished by John Zettlemoy- 
er. Margaret Boyd and Thomas 
Guinivan will be in charge of the 
morning's devotions, while Paul Horn 
will deliver the message. 

The program will be in charge of 
Lucille Maberry, president of the Y.

t's simple arithmetic that the more cars 
General Motors sells the greater this organiza- 
tion grows. And the solid fact back of that 
growth is this: General Motors cars must con- 
tinually offer more in terms of extra value 
to win those sales. It is only because General 
Motors is great that it can maintain the re-

Blithering Balderdash 

by Sennacherib, the Sardine 
Well, we're back — worse luck. When 
we announced our resignation the 
flood of protest was so great that we 
were compelled almost to return, if 
for no other reason than merely to ob- 
tain a little peace. Frankly, ladies and 
gentlemen, your attitude has us just 
a trifle bewildered. It s the first time 
in our career that the public response 
to our scrivenings has ever been no- 
ticeable enough to become annoying. 
What makes it worse, dear puDiic, 
is this tact: one can never tell what 
you 11 take one up on, of course, but 
why, why dA you have to pick out 
the worst, and the most venal column 
we ever wrote and tane a liking to 

We don't know. The editor says he 
doesn't know either, bat adds thought- 
fully that perhaps the customer is al- 
ways right. But we hope not. 

This little incident really occurred 
one line Tuesday evening about two 
weeks ago, but we were still olf on 
our recent arcistic sulk then, and so 
have had to wait until now to tell you 
about it. The place is a campus build- 
ing commonly known as bouth Hall. 
The scene is one of the ladies' apart- 
ments — never ask us which. (We 
know, but that small sparit of gal- 
lantry which still burns in the jour- 
nalistic bosom p± events our tening 
you.) A group of the ladies — <ioa 
biess 'em, were gathered about a bed 
on which one ox the lassies of the 
freshman class reclined tnough scarce- 
ly at her ease. Other young women 
hurried about with what might be 
caned a midwifeiy air, whatever that 
is, and groans oi a suspicious nature 
rose from the bed, or racner, irom its 

"Tch, tch!" said our representative, 
"what a scandal this will cause I" 

"Scandal?" said some one, "C mere, 
sister." Much whisper-whisper busi- 
ness, the outcome of which seems to 
be that our scandal had gone and goi 
itself nipped in the bud, lor 'twas but 
a celebration of something or other — 
we've conveniently xorg^tten just what 
— and all in the way of fun. 

Nope, it wasn't jLaurene this time. 

Notes On This Esoteric Era — Mr. 
Charles Raab, basso profundo expo- 
nent of manhood with the build oi 
the village blacksmith done over for 
heavy duty, according to an agent of 
ours, spent about half an hour the 
other afternoon here reading Good 
Housekeeping. Perhaps Mr. Raab is 
contemplating an early marriage. 
And then, of course, perhaps he is not, 
but at least, who can say? Not us — 
all we know is what we hear through 
the various keyholes generously sup- 
plied free of cost by the administra- 


Caveat Visitrix: among those un- 
wary persons caught beneath the mis- 
tletoe at the opening of the "Y" room 
were the following: Ella Mason, Bar- 
bara Bowman, Robert Tschop, Lau- 
rene Dreas, Wanda Price, Jack Ness, 
and others whose names are unknown 
to us. The fact that most of these 
were lured beneath the betraying 
sprig by one Benny Goodman may or 
may not possess a sociological or psy- 
chological significance, but who are 
we to say? 

Also Caveat Weirick: at the show- 
ing of The Women Have Their Way 
last week the seats of Ernie Weirick 
and Sylva Harclerode happened to be 
adjacent— by the sheerest of coinci- 
dence, we suppose. No such supposi- 
tion entered the mind of Friend Mes- 
sersmith, however, when he put in an 
appearance a few minutes later. We 
don't know just what he said, but Mr. 
Weirick was seen to be making rapid 
headway in a southerly direction soon 
thereafter. No shots were fired by ei- 
ther party.

ally we like something typically Am- 
erican in setting and s»tory; but let 
us not be accused of inconsistency 
when we say that this dictum does 
not apply to the cinema; that is some- 
thing eise again. It must suffice, then 
to say that both the plot and the novel- 
ty of the thing had worn off by the 
beginning of the second act, from 
vvhich point on we had a lovely time 
vvondering whether the love birds diu- 
u't feel out of place without castanets. 

As for the characters, we must be 
jspecialiy complimentary to Jean 
xnarberger and Anna Morrison, with 
^enny (joodman coming tor a woru 
oi praise on the next to the last 
chorus. Miss Marberger, as the gos- 
sipy, match-making Concha, did every- 
thing on the stage but steal the foot- 
lights. Her facial expressions were 
the last word and were augmented by 
ner expert manipulation ox her fan. 
xhrougnout the entire penormance 
she maintained a quite consistent 
cnaracierization to such a degree that 
we were amazed at the gioss whicn

We suspect that Anna Morrison 
must have done quite a bit of haugnty j 
^muling beiore she got said snin

joyed ia~t Weunesday evening. As 
one austere aowager, L>ona Helena,

impressive, Strayer's snappy appear- 
ance and good voice of which he did 
not make as much use as he could have 
made, did much to minimize the de- 
tractive effect of a lack of animation 
and a stiffness which we thought, was 
very unbecoming to him. 

MLs Krum's performance was one 
of two things; either she played to 
perfection a part which was so writ- 
ten as to be unobtrusive, or she sim- 
ply failed to ring the bell. We are in- 
clined toward the latter alternative; 
however, she too made a charming 
sight, and while she seemed to us to 
be more or less passive and unemo- 
tional, she did have her moments. 

As an added attraction we were 
treated to the phenomenal sight of 
a man who is lame first in one leg, 
then in the other; we refer to Clarence.

the last bit of humor from one or two 
scenes and muffed several others rath- 
er badly.

to Alice Richie and Marianne Treo.

State Botanist 
Lectures To 
Biology Club 

Penna. Wildf lowers 
Is Subject 
Of Lecture 

At a special meeting of the Biology 
Club, Monday evening those present 
were fortunate to hear a very interest- 
ing lecture on the subject of, Wild 
Flowers of Pennsylvania*, by Dr. Gress 
who is state botanist. He illustrated 
his lecture with colored slides and de- 
scribed the habits and pecularities of 
each plant presented, which included 
but a small portion of those flowers 
native to our state. 

Dr. Gress also spoke about conser- 
vation of wild flowers and mentioned 
the fact that the trend is away from 
the ruthless picking of these beautiful 
flowers that are trampled down and 
passed by unnoticed by the layman. 
He pointed out that our state is the 
keystone state so far as number and 
oeauty of flowers is concerned, being 
surpassed by perhaps, Colorado and 
Texas. The latter part of his lecture 
consisted of colored scenes from vari- 
ous parts of Pennsylvania to impress 
upon the listeners the real beauty 
that lies in our hill sides and which we 
should advertise to the same, extent as 
California. After the lecture a gen- 
eral discussion took place, during 
which questions were presented by 
members and Dr. Gress consented to 
answer them or be of any assistance 
to the club at any time. 

playgoer such as obstructing the 
view of another character, were never- 
Jie less quite satisfactory as Pilar 
and Angela, respectively. 

Under the heading of those we did 
wot like and thought would have been 
oetter off in the orchestra we must, 
aibeit with grave misgivings, place 
trover Zerbe as Don Cecilio, the doc- 
tor, and Wilnam Clark as Pepe Lora, 
the villain of the piece. Taking Mr. 
^erbe first, we wish to say that his 
/oice was none too good and tinged 
as it was at times with the local ac- 
cent, was decidedly not befitting a 
opanish doctor. HL gestures were at 
-ui times awkward and not at all con- 

We cannot speak too highly of the 
-etting which someona with rare 
i.ore.ight and possibly an overstuffed 
pocketbook provided as background 
i-or the play. It was gorgeous, it was 
lovely, it was superb; at least it was 
the tops. 

One more note of approval to Miss 
Stoner and Miss Zartman who, with 
the exception of Mr. Clark, who over- 
did the honors himself, performed 
due make-up rites.

campus. It was felt that decision de- 
bates would arouse more interest on 
the part of the students and result 
in a higher attendance. All debates 
will be on the Oregon style, that is, 
a main speech by each side and inter- 
change of cross-questioning, a plan 
which proved highly successful in last 
year's campaign. The Oregon plan re- 
sults in a faster and more interesting 
debate, both from the viewpoint of 
the audience and of the debaters them- 
selves. Almost all the debates will be 
run on a home-and-home basis. 

It is planned to make use of two 
full teams on each side. The coaches 
of this year's teams are Professor E.
